‘Landlord ordered to pay $10k: ‘It’s been a nightmare’
A Dunedin landlord says he feels robbed after being ordered to refund more than $10,000 rent to a former tenant because of a legal technicality.
Vic Inglis says he and his wife are feeling “pretty dark and twisted” after the Tenancy Tribunal found Natalie Parry’s tenancy was unlawful – and therefore she was entitled to a refund of all rent paid – because unpermitted alterations had been made to the two-storey home’s downstairs area.

(Wabbit is not a landlord, by the way. We rent the house we live in)
