More than 1000 Tenancy Tribunal hearings nationwide have been adjourned and have to be rescheduled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
A total of 1678 hearings were adjourned as a result of Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern’s announcement on March 23 the country would enter alert level 3 immediately and then 4 within two days.
More than 790 hearings were cancelled across Auckland’s courts alone, data from the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) shows.
The national monthly average of adjournments is normally about 192, making the 1678 Covid-19 adjournments the largest from any one event.
Despite this, MBIE’s Allan Galloway said some cases are still being heard.
