This is a now hidden article from the EQC website which shows that they are categorising the level of damage on the ground. Many of us have heard that EQC are categorising the land in each zone especially TC3 in a group from 1 - 9. This article which we have sourced from the global website archive system which has archived the site before EQC took this down shows what this means.

I grew up in Christchurch. Spent my early teenage years wandering round the city on a Friday night, went to the movies, met friends in the Square, and waited for the late bus home. Spent my pocket money on late night shopping Fridays, drank Coke rather than coffee and convinced myself I was grown up. The city was a vast playground for my friends and I; sights and sounds waiting to be discovered around every corner. Then the later teenage years arrived. I partied with friends in the CBD’s b ...

The past 2 years have been quite journey for all of us. When the ground shakes the way it has done here our lives change completely. In the initial disaster phase and into the recovery there was a fantastic spirit in this city. Everyone helped one another. Resources were distributed to those who needed it and there just seemed to be a real buzz around helping out your fellow Cantab in the time of need.

Insurance Issues in Christchurch

Insurance Issues in Christchurch

Monday, 3 September 2012 10:07 p.m. by BrentSelwyn Popular

When buying a house in earthquake damaged Canterbury it has become commonplace to assign insurance claims to the new purchaser. This is obviously very convenient for both the buyer and the seller. If the buyer so chooses, if the repairs have not been completed, they can take on the benefit of  the claim and  deal with the insurer direct to have repairs effected.

However, recent interpretation of insurance law by IAG and Vero in particular have ...

I have a double brick character house which has been deemed uneconomic to repair. The cost to repair was priced in the high $300,000s. Rebuild the same house at $345,000 .  My insurance company is working me over with the details to build me a box devoid of character and features instead. I have a comprehensive policy which states they will "rebuild the new house as it was when new with modern materials and methods". They say a simple house valued at 203,000 is a modern equivalent ...
