Black-logoMonday, 23 February 2015 from 6:25 PM to 9:25 PM (NZDT)   at the Transitional Cathedral


On the 23rd February 2015 a group of professional people will come together to reflect on the last four years, to share lessons learned, highlight potential issues going into 2015 and to discuss possible solutions for our community.

Dr Duncan Webb of Lane Neave, along with Peter Woods of Anthony Harper are the two keynote speakers, supported by Zoran Rakovic, Adrian Cowie, Stewart Harrison, Bevan Craig, Ali Jones, Dean Lester, Cam Preston and more.

Dr Webb will take your through a summary of recent cases, their outcomes and what they mean for homeowners in general.  Amongst other subjects Dr Webb will also touch on considerations around insurance moving forward and the complex issues with cross lease, retaining walls and flooding.

Mr Woods will drill down on the EQC struggle of being considered under-cap, when the property should be over-cap, as well as the general frustration many face dealing with EQC.  He will look at what this may mean for us moving forward.

The Panel

Stewart Harrison (Registered Quantity Surveyor) will touch on sum insured policies, Zoran Rakovic, in his capacity as a Chartered Professional Engineer, will share his observations over recent months, along with Adrian Cowie Registered Professional Surveyor and Bevan Craig, Foundation Practitioner.  All three who are very concerned about repair standards and in particular with foundations.

Cam Preston (Analyst) and Ali Jones (CCC Councillor), as claimants and individuals with public profiles will share their observations and learnings along with Dean Lester an Insurance Advocate.

There will be time for questions and answers with the expert panel members.

A Note On Logistics

Lane Neave, in association with Anthony Harper are supporting this event, however, we are asking for a gold coin donation, at the door, in support of the Transitional Cathedral.

You do not have to book and can turn up on the night, however, registering does help us with planning.  Share this event with your friends, family and work colleges.  It is highly relevant for all homeowners.

We ask that you arrive be seated for a 6:30pm kick off.

Please note: it is likely there will be a media presence.  Media is supportive and can help you be heard.

Kind Regards,

Melanie Tobeck-Bourke
