A Waikato police inspector has been called to give evidence at a Tenancy Tribunal case after it was revealed an unconsented illegal garage was being rented out on his Auckland property.

Former tenants of the Manurewa house gave evidence at the tribunal today, saying they did not know the garage was being converted.

Property manager Debbie Iskander has laid the blame with the owner, Inspector Frank Grant.

Work and Income had been referring tenants to Ms Iskandar, who was receiving accommodation subsidies.

The case has been adjourned for two months.
