Two landlords have been ordered to pay damages to 32 tenants after breaking new insulation rules.

Christchurch landlords Ying Shi and Rong Zhang were taken to the Tenancy Tribunal in relation to 81 cases where tenants claimed they hadn't included insulation details in tenancy agreements or had committed other breaches.

The case was taken to the tribunal by the Ministry of Business Innovation & Employment (MBIE) on behalf of the tenants and resulted in a total of $1600 being paid out to 32 of the tenants following mediation. The remaining cases were withdrawn.

The landlords are among more than 200
