It seems the announcements today were something of a cock-up, with misinformation and just plain wrong information out there, largely because things were announced in a half-assed fashion.  I’d love to believe it was just because the Government (and Hekia Parata in particular) is incompetent, and maybe I’m just getting too old and cynical, but you know what, I can’t help thinking it was all highly convenient way of covering Gerry Brownlee’s  today so i ...

Insurance Issues in Christchurch

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

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 ...
