A tenant sold £3,500 of her landlord’s property on Facebook.

Joanna Cathrine Penny Filipaina rented her home in Manukau, South Auckland from Investment Portfolio Management Limited Partnership.

The agency managed the property for a landlord and arranged an inspection on the day their tenancy ended in November 2021.

They discovered that the apartment was missing a huge furniture move, including a refrigerator, washer, dryer, swivel chair, nightstand, console, table, mattress, headboard, TV, blinds, closet, washer, dryer, and shower.

A court heard how “the tenant admitted in a text message that he took the furniture and sold it on Facebook.”

In addition to the items sold, there was also significant property damage – including a broken toilet, holes in walls, scratch marks on walls and damage to locks and doors.

The court found that most of the damage to the property, which was new at the beginning of the tenancy, was intentional.

Filipaina has been ordered to pay her landlord $7,661.83 – around £3,500 – mainly to cover furniture replacements.

She was also asked to pay for repairs to the damage, including plastering and painting.

Last year, a British landlord and landlady shared what their run-down home looked like after every room was ransacked by their “tenant from hell”.

Pensioners Jane and Vic Shoulders said they were devastated to find every room on their property was vandalized during an 18-month fight with their tenant.

Swindon landlords claim they eventually evicted the tenant and are now facing thousands of pounds of damage.

They decided to rent out their three-bed home for £750 a month, having originally moved to be near a sick relative.

They now say their one-time “model home” was littered with hundreds of garbage bags, a collapsed ceiling, broken children’s toys, hundreds of lunch boxes and even two dead hamsters.

The couple say their nightmare tenant moved into the property but only paid a month’s rent. Government regulations made it illegal to vacate during lockdown.

They claim the unnamed young mother lived rent-free for another 18 months.

Jane, 60, said: “It was such a beautiful home but she completely ruined it.

“Even though we only paid rent once early last year, we had to wait three months to initiate a lawful eviction.

“Then we went into lockdown and there was nothing we could do.”
