Wellington's biggest leaky building battle goes another round

Parker & Associates - Wednesday, December 11, 2013
Owners of apartments in what is believed to be Wellington’s biggest leaky building claim have won an appeal against the Weathertight Homes Tribunal.
Last month, the High Court at Wellington decided owners in Thorndon’s St Paul’s apartments were not time-barred and those who had leased their units for commercial use can still claim against the Wellington City Council.
The lawyer for the body corporate, Dan Parker, says the claim is probably Wellington’s biggest and settlement is likely to be about $17 million.
