A Northland landlord who installed an outdoor shower for a tenant, then proceeded to use it herself, has been ordered to pay more than $5000 in damages for harassment.

Angela Jinette Shearer rented a property in Kamo, Whangarei, from Sandra Henderson-Rihari.

Shearer lodged a tenancy tribunal claim against Henderson-Rihari for a number of reasons, including failure to lodge the bond, failure to repair the lock on the front door, breach of quiet enjoyment of the property, harassment and interference with the power supply.
