Our team has extensive experience in leaky building claims in the Courts and the Weathertight Homes Tribunal


We are well aware of the financial pressures on leaky building owners. Our team makes it a priority to deliver a cost-effective and professional service.

We have acted for many owners of leaky homes, including "stand-alone" dwellings and units in multi-unit complexes involving Body Corporates. We have obtained compensation from territorial authorities, private certifiers and parties involved in the design and construction as well as from product manufacturers.

We have also acted for parties facing claims for compensation, such as architects, builders, former owners of leaky homes and pre-purchase inspectors.

We work hard to achieve positive outcomes for our clients.  Where possible this is through settlement, either by direct negotiation or alternative dispute resolution processes such as mediation or Judicial Settlement Conference. When necessary we will pursue cases through to trial in order to achieve a meaningful resolution.

We have handled cases throughout New Zealand.

For our Christchurch clients we can help navigate the minefield created by a leaky building or defective construction claim, EQC and claims under insurance policies.
