The first quake to rattle Christchurch was almost two years ago – in September 2010 – but hundreds of homeowners remain unhappy with the progress of the Earthquake Commission.
So they have been offered mediation – and scheme will be administered by the Arbitrators' and Mediators' Institute of New Zealand.
AMINZ executive director Deborah Hart spoke to Firstline this morning, saying not all Christchurch residents who are in dispute with EQC will be offered its services.
“There are a number of issues that won’t be issued invitations to come to mediation, issues of apportionment, settlement outcomes… zoning issues, interpretation of legislation” she clarified.
Ms Hart says residents who are offered mediation can choose whether or not to go through with the process.
