Expert's Assistant chat
Customer: We have been evicted as tenants due to evidence & witnesses made against us. However, my evidence wasnt as convincing to the Judge which left me confused as I had evidence against all accusations made against my family & I. The evidence given in court from landlord & witnesses was from emails which was name suppression due to safety of those going against us. How could those emails be blanked out with copies given to the judge & I and not knowing if those evidence weren't made by the neighbours themselves & not from adjoining neighbours. Also how are we to know that the neighbours didnt go over to adjoining neighbors to email letters to landlords to help the complaining neighbours for a better chance of eviction. Please help me as I was ruled unfairly & would love answers as to why my family & I were ruled against allegations, accusations & emails (not knowing where or who emails actually came from.
JA: What steps have you taken so far? Have you prepared or filed any paperwork?
Customer: Yes I have.
JA: Where is the property located?
Customer: ***** Paraparaumu Beach, Paraparaumu
JA: Anything else you want the Lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: There was a party behind the neighbours house which started from 10am right through to midnight new years eve with loud bass, screaming, singing etc & no noise complaints were issued in noticed nor visited by noise control but we were visited twice in an hour & issued a notice on a 2nd visit because a apparently adjoining neighbor made a complaint also BUT!, both visits was under excessive noise. Last but not least armourguard said the complaints came from elsewhere, my daughter followed guard on 1st visit & he went straight over to our neighbor, then 2nd visit my partner saw neighbours lights on, wandered over to the hedge & heard guard talking to neighbours, then came over & issued the notice.

You can appeal the decision to the District Court but there is a time limit of 10 working days. If this happened before the start of the holiday period then the statutory days are not counted, but otherwise it may be too late.

As for the hearing itself, it is the job of the adjudicator to decide who is telling the truth. Unfortunately sometimes they decide one party is more believable. The concealment of the names is sometimes done where the tenancy adjudicator thinks there is a risk to the persons. Some landlords are more tolerant of noise than others as well, but your landlord appears to have taken a hard line.
