Urgent Attention: Limitation Act
urgent action required by IAG customers
In respect of "on-sold" properties IAG will not confirm that it has agreed to defer the LP defence to 30 June 2018. It appears that IAG is going to claim that re. "on-sold" properties it can rely on the LP defence from 4/9/17.
November 2016 Earthquake
Serious questions for EQC and your insurer
Many questions from claimants and experts have been raised about how EQC and insurers are dealing with assessments and the claims process following the November 2016 earthquake. Consider if these questions are important to your claim.
LIMITATION EXTENSION REQUEST TEMPLATES
While we do not necessarily accept that the limitation period for Canterbury claims will expire on 4 September 2017, we are concerned that some insurers may consider that it does expire then, and that they may rely on it as a defence to any claim you may be required to bring.
We have just added several templates for claimants to request an extension from their insurer to the limitation period imposed under the Limitation Act 1950 and/or Limitation Act 2010. This is very important for any homeowner with a claim. You should take action now.
Other template available include:
Expert legal opinions
Q&A from legal experts
EQC Fix has just added expert legal opinions on the burning questions many of you will have around your insurance claims.
Joint declaratory statement with EQC
EQC Group Action Settlement
A group of 98 Canterbury homeowners has won a landmark settlement with the Earthquake Commission (EQC) following a bid for a joint declaratory statement. The joint statement is relevant to anyone with settled or unsettled properties with EQC dwelling claims. But what does it all really mean for you?
A packed public meeting was held at the Transitional Cathedral, 12 May 2016, with the aim to inform home owners of the joint statement/agreement reached and its implications for them and their property.
