Verdict gives no favour

A TRIBUNAL verdict has left both sides of an argument out of pocket.

The dispute between tenant Kristine Louise Cameron and landlord Ian Spalding was heard by the Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal.

Cameron alleged that the premises had become unliveable due to broken asbestos in the walls.

Spalding alleged Cameron should be responsible for the damage to the walls, which he said was caused by her children.

Cameron was ordered to pay Spalding $3250 for necessary repairs.

Spalding was ordered to reimburse Cameron $1,146.84 for a building inspection, temporary repairs and a rent reduction.

Cameron was left with a judgement debt of $2103.16, which she must pay within three months.

The magistrate ruled that the decision couldn't be appealed.
