Leaky Homes Package

By Andrew Steele - 9 Aug 2011

The Government's financial assistance package for owners of leaky homes has recently come into effect. Home owners may choose between taking the Council to Court for the recovery of the costs of repairs, or signing up for the assistance package. Accepting the package means that home owners cannot seek any further compensation from the Council.

If they choose the package option, the Government will contribute 25% of the cost of repairs, and, if it originally certified the defective works, the local Council will contribute a further 25% of the cost of repairs.

The package does not prevent home owners from bringing claims against other building contractors involved for the rest of their loss.

Please contact Andrew Steele to discuss this further.
