The leaky building crisis continues to affect thousands of New Zealand homeowners and is far from over.

Many leaky buildings throughout New Zealand remain unrepaired or have been the subject of inadequate or faulty remedial work. Those buildings continue to be bought and sold and homeowners later discover that they have purchased or own a leaky home, or that repairs to their home have failed.

Often the full extent of the problem will not be uncovered by the homeowners for many years as the defects are typically latent. This has resulted in a number of claims now falling outside the 10 year limitation longstop provision in the Building Act/s 1991 and 2004.

As a result, owners of leaky homes must consider other potential avenues for recovery. Recovery options will often remain for faulty repair work, or against parties involved in the sale and purchase transaction including vendors, Real Estate Agents, and pre-purchase inspectors. (continued...)
