The Australian radio and television personality, who was sued by Howard Symington over claims that he broke his rental lease by moving out of his Terrey Hills mansion without warning, may not make it to the tenancy tribunal next month.
Symington's spokesperson told The Daily Telegraph that a resolution is "coming along", adding: "There was a lot of emotion involved initially but we're now trying to take emotion out of it and hope that we can get it resolved."
Sandilands first moved into the eight-bedroom, 13-bathroom property in October last year, shortly after his split from wife Tamara Jaber. However, he handed in the keys ten months later despite the lease being a minimum of 18 months.
When he discovered that Symington planned to sue him for $50,000 (£32,000), the star went on air to describe the house as a "13-toilet s**thole", adding: "It turned into months of problems... [with] 13 toilets full of backed-up poo."
Symington then decided to increase his claim to $250,000 (£158,000) as compensation for Sandilands damaging the property's reputation.
