Lower Hutt women win reprieve from eviction therough the stupidity of Housing New Zealand...

Three Lower Hutt women given 24 hours to vacate their homes by Housing New Zealand on Monday have won a reprieve.

Robyn Winther, Huia Tamaka and Billy Taylor were first issued with 90-day eviction notices in March 2009.

Notices mistakenly attached to the orders described the women as partners of gang members who were facing charges of burglary or intimidation, which were later dropped.

The women claimed Housing New Zealand acted unlawfully by terminating the tenancies in the suburb of Taita and in doing so breached the Bill of Rights.

The Tenancy Tribunal upheld the eviction notices, but the women appealed to the District Court, the High Court and the Court of Appeal, which dismissed their appeal in December last year.

Earlier, bailiffs with a police escort served them with notices to leave within 24 hours or be forcibly evicted.

However, on Monday afternoon they were granted an interim injunction, pending the full hearing of their case by the Human Rights Review Tribunal.

KR says:
The women actually live in the Pomare community of North Taita a  suburb in Lower Hutt city and have only survived through the stupidity of Housing New Zealand staff. The so-called gang members were not tenants of the properties and as a consequence the women involved were not treated fairly under the 'law'. They are entitled to be protected under the Bill of Rights. That shows how stupid this government is as well. And the 'mincing'  PM John Key as well. This is the stupid sort of things being experienced in the liberal conservative regime of New Zealand.

Les montants de l’ [url=http://www.dopimmo.com]immobilier[/url]ancien pourraient accuser une nouvelle chute d’au moins 10% sur les douze prochains mois, suivi de nouveaux replis de 5% en 2010 et de 3% en 2011.
Aprcs un premier repli de 3,1% en 2008, les prix de l’ [url=http://www.dopimmo.com]immobilier location[/url] ancien pourraient accuser une nouvelle chute d’au moins 10% sur l’annee suivante. Et la chute devrait se poursuivre les annיes suivantes si l’on se fie aux scיnario les plus pessimistes avancיs par la Fnaim.
D’aprcs une יtude publiיe ce matin, la Fיdיration nationale des agences [url=http://www.dopimmo.com]immobilier[/url] rappelle en effet que la chute s’est fortement accיlיrיe en fin d’annיe… Aprcs avoir enregistrי un recul de 2,9% au cours du 3cme trimestre, les prix des logements anciens se sont effondrיs de prcs de 6,5% au cours du seul 4cme trimestre de 2008.
La baisse des taux enclenchיe fin 2008 ne suffira donc pas r renverser la tendance et r relancer la demande r court terme. Plusieurs raisons r cela. Depuis quelques mois, les agences immobilieres constatent que les nיgociations sont de plus en plus tendues entre vendeurs et acheteurs. « Surtout, malgrי des taux qui repassent en dessous de la barre des 5%, il est r craindre que les banques ne desserrent pas facilement leurs conditions de crיdit dans les mois r venir. Pour l’heure, les exigences d’apport personnels restent toujours trcs strictes : autour de 10 r 20% en moyenne », observe Renי Pallincourt, prיsident de la Fיdיration nationale des agences immobilieres
Face r ce constat, la Fnaim prיfcre donc parier sur une stabilisation du marchי r horizon 2012. « Une nouvelle baisse d’au moins 10% est encore nיcessaire pour rיtablir la solvabilitי des mיnages et permettre de relancer le marchי [url=http://www.dopimmo.com]immobilier[/url]» note Renי Pallincourt. Compte tenu de l’יvolution incertaine de la crise יconomique, la Fיdיration s’avance meme, pour la premicre fois, r יvoquer de nouvelles baisses de prix au cours des prochaines annיes. La Fnaim anticipe ainsi un repli de 5% en 2010 et de 3% en 2011.
