The Bondi house long embroiled in a battle over its unslightly rubbish hoarding was pulled from its scheduled auction last night.

It wasn't that the Bobolas family came up with the funds to repay Waverley Council, but rather some sheriff's paperwork that wasn't quite right.

It was expected to fetch $2 million plus purely for the 553 sqm plot.

Local residents were unimpressed on the mid-afternoon news that the postponed auction means more weeks or months of stinking stacks of rubbish.

Raine & Horne agent Ric Serrao said the postponement was advised when the sheriff's lawyers checked all the accompanying legal paperwork.

The hoarders has been a 26 year saga between the family and the Waverley Council.

The Bobolas family managed to stop the early 2015 sale when it was listed in February by stumping up $180,000 for cleaning and legal bills.

But Waverley Council released a more recent statement suggesting the family now owes a further $160,000 with legal costs still accruing.

Waverley Council have lodged four local curt writs on the title, the most recent being for over $43,000 court judgement in April.

More than $350,000 of Waverley ratepayers money has been spent trying to control the tonnes of rubbish.

The home has been in the Bobolas family name since they paid $15,000 in 1973.

The new owners when it is sold will have the responsibility of disposing of the rubbish left behind.
