Mystery after squatters leave abandoned Dunedin property covered in rubbish

Nicole Reporter from Dunedin News

A three-bedroom house for sale by mortgagee auction was left a mess by squatters, neighbours say.

Behind the padlocked door is a former family home, which – according to the Trade Me photos – was left strewn with rubbish, including plastic bags and discarded household items.

The Musselburgh property, which was listed for sale on October 2, will be sold at a mortgagee auction on October 30.
