Leaky Buildings - current issues & recovery options - 1.5 CPD hours

  • Publication date: May 2017
  • Authors: Dan Parker, James Wollerman

The leaky building crisis is far from over. Thousands of New Zealanders continue to be seriously affected by the discovery that they own or have bought a leaky building that attempted repairs have failed. This webinar discusses some of the recovery options and recent legal developments in this area.

The leaky home crisis has not diminished over recent years, with significant numbers of homeowners continuing to discover they own a “leaky home”. Claims against construction parties are increasingly captured by a limitation defence, however recovery options remain. Product liability claims, claims for negligent repairs and vendor liability issues are arising with increasing frequency.

This module will explore these key topics and will provide some practical advice on liability issues and avenues for recovery for leaky home owners.

Topics covered will include:
  • Product liability claims for systemic defects and “class actions”
  • Recent judicial discussion on the “duty to warn”
  • Liability for negligent repairs
  • The sale of leaky homes – disclosure obligations, due diligence and claims in misrepresentation
  • Relevant limitation periods – the Building Act(s), Limitation Act(s) and the recent Supreme Court decision in Lee v Whangarei District Council
  • Some practical guidance on assessing potential avenues for recovery
  • Recent case law.
