Mt Roskill rental ad asking tenants not to cook stir fries "discrimination"

Brittany Keogh Reporter from Central Leader

Hi neighbours, An online ad for a Mt Roskill rental property requesting tenants avoid stir fry cooking has been changed after it was found to be discriminatory.
TradeMe says the line stating the landlords would "prefer non-stir fry cooking method tenants" is illegal and a breach of the Human Rights Act. However, the landlord says he thought it was OK because it was just a preference. Have you experienced discrimination while looking for a home?
