REASONS FOR DECISION

  1. [1]
    Peter Rowell and Vanessa Mackie were in a relationship. When the relationship broke down, Ms Mackie stayed in Mr Rowell’s house. She did not pay rent.
  2. [2]
    Mr Rowell applied to the tribunal for a termination of Ms Mackie’s tenancy. The tribunal ordered accordingly. Ms Mackie appealed that order and applied for a stay of the warrant of possession. On 4 November 2015, I granted the stay with conditions. One of the conditions was that Ms Mackie pay Mr Rowell a weekly rent of $300. I further ordered that, if Ms Mackie failed to pay two consecutive rent payments, and Mr Rowell filed an affidavit to that effect, the stay would be revoked.
  3. [3]
    Mr Rowell did file an affidavit stating that Ms Mackie had not paid rent for two consecutive weeks. Accordingly, I revoked the stay and reinstated the warrant of possession.
