Supreme Court rules in favour of Council in leaky building claim

By Andrew Steele - 29 May 2012

In the recent Supreme Court decision of MacNamara v Auckland Council & ORS the Court ruled in favour of the Council in finding that they could not be held liable for accepting certification from a private certifier, ABC certifiers, even though the certifier's authority in relation to that type of house construction had been revoked.

This decision will be a blow for many leaky home owners whose homes were certified by private certifiers, most of whom are now insolvent. For many of these owners, the Financial Assistance Package may be an option for recovering a portion of their losses.  Please contact Andrew Steele for more information on the Financial Assistance Package.
