Hi neighbours - a Kerikeri landlord must pay compensation for trying to rent out an illegal former shed with a barrier made from chicken mesh, exposed cables and broken fittings.
They were ordered to pay $3800 to tenant Taana Rihari, who considered the premise so unsafe he refused to live in it with his family. Have you ever had a dodgy landlord experience?
