Well presented team.As Barry says, Good luck to the O'loughlins. A whole lot of us 'Red Zoners' are going to do our best to get the whole of N.Z involved in this case. All policy holders need to sit up and pay close attention because it affects us all - in one way or another.

Thanks for the information re the fund for Repair /Rebuild. These people deserve our help as they are ordinary folk taking on the massive insurance companies who are able to bully people into submission . Good Luck O Loughlins

Thanks for your support of this brave couple, Matt and Valerie.
Court case March 4th 2013

After this case is sorted then will come the TC3 people who unlike the red zoner's who at least were offered some ( I know not market value) compensation for their land, are walking off theirs and leaving their whole land equity behind. Maybe in 10 years time the value MAY be restored but a section with 270 ton of liquefaction taken out of it right across the road from the red zone. Nothing wrong with it says CERA, it's green! Yeah right!, you tell any prospective buyer, bank or insurer that. John, are you on to this story? It's the EQ Lottery.

@Trevor, mediation? with insurance companies who often won't even respond to emails or assign case managers, not even to red zone home owners! Yes, it would save us tens of thousands if we could avoid lawyers but what other choice is there? We either crawl away with the 2007 gv instead of the full replacement settlements we all paid for, or we fight it out in court against companies who have in house legal teams and millions of dollars behind them (OUR dollars!)

I have a replacement policy with Vero, my policy states it covers me for Loss OR Damage yet Vero're only offering to pay me for the damage. The legal definition or loss includes loss of use so they're in the wrong but it's costing me heaps to fight them as I refuse to be ripped off. It wasn't the insurers fault the government rezoned land but it also wasn't their fault there was an earthquake. That's the whole point, insurance covers you for the unexpected, even unexpected for them...

Where can we start a donation for these people? This is shocking and sure does make you wonder about insurance companies? Why are you Tower Insurance not honouring your policy?, that house clearly can not be repaired come on
