This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for Miles Stratford to read recent responses and update the status.

From: Miles Stratford

Dear Housing New Zealand Corporation,

The Housing Minster has advised that initial payments have been made to tenants wrongly evicted under the historic meth policy Housing New Zealand (HNZ) operated https://www.radionz.co.nz/national/progr...

1 / Please provide a copy of the Meth Policy and the basis on which it was applied

2/ Of the approximately 800 tenants who are reported as being in line for compensation payments, in how many instances, did HNZ believe it had sufficient evidence to hold these people accountable under the 'balance of probabilities' test that is used to determine liability under the Residential Tenancies Act?

3/ The the top 5 cases by quantum of loss to HNZ, please provide details of the costs to HNZ of the meth related damage and repair costs to HNZ, including copies of test results, meth test reports and recommendations for decontamination,along with copies of the evidence that HNZ used to hold the people in question accountable?

4/ What compensation payouts are likely to be made to the parties who were wrongly held accountable for these particular losses?

Yours faithfully,

Miles Stratford
