Default ClusterNFBSK of the now: Man finds out he owns the wrong house

And the one he does own belonged to the drug dealer who actually owns his place.

Keep in mind, this is New Zealand we’re talking about. Any legal solutions here have to be backed up with a ton of research, due to most people not being familiar with it outside of it being that country that gave us Lord Of The Rings and Power Rangers.

Well that does suggest the obvious extra-legal solution of calling Gandalf in to sort it out with magic somehow. Although his magic seems better suited to blowing up both the houses so that it's not a problem any more...

I find that a strange headline. He doesn't own the house he thinks he does. The sad part is that those who screwed up are so busy passing blame back and forth that he's going to end up losing the house (right or wrong) before everything gets straightened out.

Hopefully New Zealand has some variation of squatter's rights that would delay the police taking the house he is living in.
