How to Survive a Leaky Home

Yvonne van Dongen

Publisher:Hachette New Zealand Ltd

Think of it as a natural disaster. A $6 billion natural disaster affecting 80,000 homes in New Zealand, likely to lead to rates rises in Auckland and possibly elsewhere. One way or another the leaky homes catastrophe affects everyone in New Zealand, most especially the unfortunate home owners. How to Survive A Leaky Home is a guide for people from woe to go. The catastrophe affects all owners of homes built after changes to the 1991 Building Act, and the 10-year limit from construction to claiming means only those within this time frame are able to seek compensation. The book will begin even before a house is declared leaky by asking ""How do you know your house is not a leaky home?“ It will provide the reader with ”tell-tale"" signs and other not-so-obvious signs of a leaky home. It will provide information on who to go to and the steps to take should the house be found to be leaky. It will cover how the Weathertight Homes Tribunal Works, whether to go to court or use the state system, what to expect in terms of time and costs, what they can claim for, whether to stay in the home or go during repair.
