    Default Slumlord

    The slumlord at back, after allowing the back section of his rental to grow fence high with weeds for ages has now dumped 2 huts on it.
    They are at right angles to each other, they almost touch.......
    So he has 3 now, one OK house and the 2 shacks.

    Oh joy, this is the one right up against our back fence.

    That was the moving process.
    Here is a detailed view of it:

    Be interesting to see if he actually insulates it...paints it, or anything. Highly unlikely....his side fence has disintegrated, boards fallen off, rot, patched with bits of tin...

    Even worse than that thing in our face now, is the thought of the sort of tenant he'll get........

    Perhaps a phone call to the City Council ?

    There is surely a ton of rules being broken, especially if he wants to rent it out
    has to be a certain distance from boundries/fence , does he have Planing Consents , Resource Consents ?

    Small sleepouts and garden sheds under 10m2 in most areas have to be their own height away from the boundary, anything larger needs building consent.
    There are also rules regarding shade angles on the boundary. You can get around these rules, but only with your neighbours consent generally.

    Really seems like your neighbour might be ignoring a few rules as 1101 suggested.

    Council says we are not impacted at all.

    Hey, thought you said you had Mongrel Mob guys living close. They would probably help you?

    The ladies next door Kenj.....um, I would think if they had any hassles they might attend to it, but it backs our place, not theirs.....
    Anyway remains to be seen when tenant arrives, so far it's still empty.

    We have just installed a key bolt on back shed.
