I earlier posted on the appropriateness of the EQC to be the provider of cover in a disaster when most of their focus is on collection of the levies and investing them with no ability to perform risk analysis or assessment of damage.
I suggested the EQC be a reinsurer and leave policy, risk assessment and assessor functions at the 'coalface'to the primary insurer.
Nothing in watching their performance revealed has changed that view. Personally we are still waiting for an assessment of the damage we sustained in the September 4th quake.
Far too many claims have been settled without regard to depreciation, deferred maintenance and cover paid for damage that had zero connection to any of the four main events but were paid out for anyway by hastily employed staff whose standards of performance had no fairness or equity in the outcome.
Now the survivors and families of the victims of the PGC building collapse are being denied the right to claim for personal possession lost in the demolished building as they cannot produce "The CERA paperwork confirming the building has been demolished".
The main problem is that the site was cleared by contractors working under the direction of the Civil Defense bureaucrats before CERA was established.
The "PRAT" who is making this idiotic stand should be named, shamed and placed in the stocks.
As Nick Walls a very lucky survivor, the last extricated alive from the wreckage, said it is offensive he can be pretty conservative in his comments our Nick, but that is an understatement.
I am unable to find a site photo of 233 Cambridge Tce but if that prick could just take a look in his/her lunch break he/she might just work that out quite easily, and take a couple of pics for the file, as it has been cleared..
