APOLOGIES ARE NOT ENOUGH wrote:
"All I can do is apologise" - this is shameful. They can certainly do more - like paying out on their claims. My house destroyed in February 2011 and today I am still no closer to being able to move on. I have yet to see my scope on my house, which gives my 'rebuild estimate'. I require this document in order to assess whether I want to rebuild on my current site, elsewhere or purchase an existing home (to the value of the rebuild estimate). Strange, but I had to wait a year to get confirmation that I my house was a rebuild and it looks like I have to wait another year for my Rebuild Estimate, but it's okay as Renee Walker apologises. IAG were voted the worst performer after the quake and the rest of the country needs to take note. There are huge numbers of Cantabrians who will be leaving this company the minute they get paid out (perhaps that's why they are delaying paying out our claims)?

Would dearly love to see some of the higher ups in the insurance companies to go spend a night in my Mother's house with my brain injured brother and rain in the kitchen... Keppel Street if you are wondering. If my brother gets Bronchitis and dies I WILL be holding you accountable.

Reality is that a court case won by the Insurance companies is allowing them to stall on settlements. Agreed there are policies differences between EQC and Insurers but once repairs hit that FIRST $100k mark then settlement needs to be negotiated with the client by the top up Insurance company and all other negotiated settlements with EQC can be worked on after that. Why do you think the knock for knock agreement came into being! I hope Chris Ryan & Gerry Brownlee looks to stop this madness.
