The boss of a major New Zealand real estate chain has avoided a high court hearing over the sale of her allegedly leaky rental home after reaching an out-of-court settlement.

But Corinna Mansell, the former general manager of Remax, still has to deal with the Real Estate Agents Disciplinary Tribunal after an investigation found she should face charges of “disgraceful conduct”.

Mansell was sued for up to $700,000 by Te Awamutu pensioner Jean Warburton, who bought Mansell’s Hamilton property then found it needed major repairs.

Warburton said Mansell never showed her a report that said the house might leak or told her of previous repairs; Mansell in turn blamed the sales agents, Andrew Gibson and Cary Ralph, for not passing on the report to the buyer. They denied receiving it and Mansell had no proof it was sent.
