Former Hawthorn star Brad Sewell has won a messy legal battle over unpaid rent after leasing his multi-million dollar mansion to a property developer.

The two-time premiership AFL player leased his Brighton, Melbourne-based property to Fridcorp founder Paul Fridman and his partner Kestie Lane.

The couple signed a lease in which they agreed to pay $12,167 a month in rent.

Sewell claimed the couple was behind in their payments and owed him $48,472 before taking the case to the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal.

Mr Fridman claimed he was forced to vacate the property after the pool started to leak. He said it made the house ‘uninhabitable’, Herald Sun reported.

He called himself a “humble warrior” and “poor old tenant.”

“As a poor old tenant, just a fighter in life, I just expect the normal luxuries of lockable doors and gates that can be locked and closed,” he said.

His comment comes despite the fact that his massive real estate portfolio is worth millions of dollars.

His company Fridcorp acquired The Intercontinental Hotel Double Bay, in eastern Sydney, in May for $180 million.

Known as the Ritz Carlton in the 1990s, the property hosted Princess Diana in 1996 before INXS frontman Michael Hutchence was found dead in room 524 the following year.

The hotel was purchased in a joint venture with Piety Group.

Marshall White property manager Jennifer O’Connell labeled the legal process “unnecessary.”

She said Mr Fridman and his partner had “sufficient financial resources to meet their rental obligations.”

VCAT ordered the couple to pay the outstanding $48,472.

Daily Mail Australia contacted Mr Fridman for comment.
