Wall verticality

Wall verticality

Saturday, 4 April 2015 3:06 p.m. by GrantShandLawyers

Leans of walls are a symptom of earthquake damage.  This is know as wall verticality.  We recently did a trial against Lumley General Insurance  where the primary issues was whether the wall leans were caused by earthquake(s) and if so, what is the required remedial work and cost.  The Court reserved its decision.  The lean of walls is often an item overlooked by people assessing earthquake damage.  It is important that it is not overlooked.

Thousands of people appear to still be trapped in the process and the victims of delayed and inadequate EQC assessments.  EQC prioritises assessments for houses where it is sued.  So the quickest way to get out of the EQC process is to sue.  If through the Court process EQC then pays cap EQC will be liable for legal costs and disbursements.  So, suing EQC is better economic choice.
