A family renting in Auckland has been awarded $17,451 by the Tenancy Tribunal after it ruled their landlord failed to fix their mouldy, rotten, rat-damaged home.

The Cardon-Smith family rented the Hillsborough house from the landlord Southbridge Trustee Limited from April 2017 to July 2020.

But from the start, the family says they had issues with its condition, and subsequently went to the Tenancy Tribunal arguing their landlord failed to maintain the property and failed to fix the issues fast enough.
