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.

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 ...

At one point last year, the plight facing red-zoners was described as being like "climbing Mt Everest with jandals on". While it's still the case that many red-zoners are facing an uphill battle to re-build their lives, I would like to think that we've now been able to locate some crampons to make the climb possible.
