Sniffer dogs in apartments for random drug tests - 8th Aug 2018

Sniffer dogs in apartments for random drug tests

Drug sniffer dogs are being used to detect drug use in apartment buildings. The issue has come to light after a landlord posted a listing on Trade Me promising "random" drug tests. The Trade Me rental listing for a two-bedroom home in Onehunga said the tenant would have to agree to a "random drug detection regime". The listing was removed following inquiries into how these drugs tests were carried out. "All of my properties are subject to a random drug detection regime to make this a safe environment for you and your family," the ad read. Auckland property lawyer Joanna Pidgeon said while landlords were able to conduct tests for contaminants, they still had to give at least 48 hours' notice before visiting the tenant. Landlords who conduct random tests inside homes without notice could pay up to $2000 in damages.
