Decision for tenant fighting eviction reserved

21/02/17

Decision for tenant fighting eviction reserved until end of week

This mornings hearing in the Tenancy Tribunal has resulted in a reserved decision "until the end of the week".

The hearing today was one where Tāmaki Regeneration Ltd sought a Possession Order of Ioela (Niki) Rauti's home, 14 Taniwha St Glen Innes.

Ms Rauti and her representatives made two submissions, both based on the question of who the landlord is. There are three different organisations which all share the same staff, address but have different and conflicting purposes: Tāmaki Revelopment Company, Tāmaki Regeneration Ltd, Tāmaki Housing Associaoom Limited Partnership.

The two submissions made were 1) the 90 day eviction notice is not valid because it was not made by the landlord and 2) the application for the Possession Order was not made by the landlord (as identified in any correspondence to Ms Rauti nor in the 90 day eviction notice) and therefore cannot be granted.

Stop Niki's Eviction continues to occupy 14 Taniwha St with Niki and stand against the privatisation of state housing and eviction of tenants.

At the time, Brash would justify raising interest rates on the grounds that as RB governor, he always needed to be looking 18 months ahead, and judging where things might go by then, if he didn’t act now...
