An Auckland landlord has been ordered by the Tenancy Tribunal to pay their former tenant $7629, Stuff reports, following a “short and unhappy” tenancy in a cockroach-infested flat. The problems at the Parnell flat began from the get-go, when property manager Kenneth Mak failed to provide the Healthy Homes Standard report or lodge the tenant’s bond. The tenant “ended up only eating one meal a day due to the stress and anxiety she experienced” in the flat, and also sought help from a psychologist when she lived there.
