Kāinga Ora is under fire again over how it manages disruptive tenants.
A Christchurch woman said the housing agency broke a promise to only house tenants with unblemished records in her neighbourhood.
Another Auckland housing advocate said Kāinga Ora’s own tenants are afraid to complain about disorderly neighbours.
Clair McConchie bought her Glenroy St property in the Christchurch suburb of Woolston about 11 years ago and almost immediately began having problems with nearby Kāinga Ora tenants.
Issues ranged from prostitution to drug dealing and gang tensions, culminating in a stand-off.
