An Auckland landlord has been ordered to pay nearly $8000 in compensation after ignoring a mouldy property that worsened a family’s health conditions, Stuff reports. Between May and August 2021, the mother – who was in remission for bowel cancer and had asthma and a “vulnerable immune system” – was in and out of hospital. Her youngest child, a baby, was diagnosed with croup and bronchiolitis, and had to be admitted to a hospital intensive care unit. Medical certificates were provided to the tribunal confirming the “cold and damp house conditions” exacerbated the family’s conditions.
