My home is freehold but I have to pay normal living costs that is equal to a couple. eg rates water etc. This comes to approximately $200.00 per week and there are also incidentals. The amount that I get on super leaves me with $138.00 for any upkeep of the house and there is no money left for socializing
I have suggested on your other question, that you still try for a review although the passage of time may make this difficult. Perhaps the otrher r4emedy is to ask the Ombudsman as they investigate unfairness, and you certainly can argue that the failure to keep you advised of options is unfair.
who is and how do I get in touch with Ombudsman?
Look at this site http://www.ombudsman.parliament.nz/
This should tell you about who the ombudsman is and how the office can help you
