    • A Dunedin landlord was ordered to refund $10,000 of rent back to a tenant because she had been living in a property with unpermitted alterations. The tenant in the property for 29 weeks.

      Vic Inglis and his wife bought the property as is. They did not realise that the alterations were different from plans submitted to the Dunedin City Council, and did not request a LIM report.

      The Tenancy Tribunal said the tenancy was unlawful because of the unpermitted work and the tenant was entitled to a full refund of all rent paid.
