Tenancy Tribunal

The Tenancy Tribunal resolves disputes between tenants and landlords of residential properties.

Kia ora and welcome to the Tenancy Tribunal website. The Tenancy Tribunal is a specialist tribunal that resolves disputes between landlords and tenants.

Disputes between landlords and tenants are first referred to the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE).

The MBIE will arrange mediation and if the parties can't reach agreement, the case is referred to the Tenancy Tribunal.

For information on your rights and responsibilities as a landlord or tenant, see the Tenancy Services website.
