A Christchurch couple has uncovered a fault in their houses earthquake repairs that could affect hundreds of other homeowners and cost millions to repair.

Jane Cowper and Sander Murray purchased the house three years ago, wanting a fresh start. They've been renovating the house, but when they went to do a last extension off the back they discovered cracked foundations.

"Over the past 12 months, we've received reopened claims for just over 600 claims for defective foundation repairs," said Renee Walker from EQC.
