Council Class Action

Council Class Action


Welcome to the Council Class Action. This funded class action will be calling Councils to account for leaky and failed buildings that they have approved during the past 10 years.

The action is aimed at helping those property and home owners who have found themselves saddled with Council-approved work that now leaks or has failed in other ways.

We are seeking registrations of interest from owners of buildings that have defects and:

•  Council approved the work after September 2007; or
•  Already have a legal claim running relating to the building; or
•  Have registered with Weathertight Homes Services.

If there is sufficient interest from owners with viable claims, we will be seeking compensation from Councils through a class action which we expect to be fully funded.

The form should take no longer than 10 minutes to complete*.
