  • Landlord fined $30k to payback rent on sleepout

    Just wondered how many have seen this recent ruling Jan 2021, where a consented sleepout was rented out as self contained living quarters at the back of a main house for 3 years at $200pw and the landlord has been ordered to pay back the 3 years of rent collected which is around 30k????

    So the tenant will have all his rent money refunded plus around 10k additional .

    This seems obscenely draconian - what are your thoughts?
