Hi. As Andy says, although it sounds like your relationship with your landlord is not good, it may be worth approaching him/her again. Provided the landlord’s intention is to continue leasing the property, it is in their interests to do what they can to assist you through this. But there are also other potential options for you to consider, depending on certain details relating to your lease. I would be happy to talk to you about the options – please email me directly at amanda.spratt@minterellison.co.nz and I can assist further.
