A man with no building experience or qualifications who nevertheless built a house has been ordered to pay $750,000 to the Auckland home's new owners because it essentially requires a rebuild.

A High Court judgment states that Hyun Su Park built the three-storey house in Birkenhead on Auckland's North Shore in 2000.

The house was on-sold and about four or five  years after purchasing the property the current owners began to notice leaking issues, which they tried unsuccessfully to remedy.

By the time their case reached the Weathertight Homes Tribunal in 2015 their house had been described by one assessor as being "close to requiring a total rebuild". Another said that to make the property compliant with the Building Code, it would need a full reclad of all exterior walls and complete replacement of decking and roofing materials.

In all, building assessors found 10 serious defects to the the house related to cladding, the windows, flashings, the roof, decks, and the balustrades and parapets.

The Tribunal found Park was not liable for the leaky home, but in the Auckland High Court that decision was quashed.
