A woman who lived rent-free in her brother’s house for 30 years has been ordered to reimburse him nearly $250,000 after he won a court case to evict her.

The decades-long dispute between Virginia Woolf and her brother, Alwyn Kaye, came to a head in a series of hearings at the High Court at Auckland this year.

It centred on a house in the upmarket suburb of Epsom, valued at $2 million, where Woolf had lived since 1982, for most of the time paying no rent.
