Earthquake damage or Pre-existing.

In He v Earthquake Commission and ors [2017] NZHC 2136 the High Court (Dunningham J) had to decide whether the damage to Mr He’s property at 377 Selwyn Street, Addington was caused by the earthquakes or not.  The judgment records that over the life of the proceeding Mr He had engaged 6 different structural engineers.  The judgment also records that the tenant of the property at the time of the earthquakes supported EQC and the insurer that the damage existed before the earthquakes.  Predictably Mr He lost.  A surprising case to run to trial.
