Unit title developments can be fertile ground for (un)neighbourly disputes, some more trivial than others. A recent High Court decision (Body Corporate 375933 v Tenancy Tribunal & Anor  NZHC 1619) has clarified the threshold for bringing a claim to the Tenancy Tribunal. Simply put, the claim must not be moot. If a moot claim – i.e. one where there’s no actual live controversy having real consequences for one or both parties – is brought against you, then you can argue that such a moot point cannot be heard by the Tribunal.
