Kelly v EQC & Southern Response – no appeal


The appeal period for any appeal from the judgment in C & S Kelly Properties Ltd v EQC & Southern Response Earthquake Services Ltd [2015] NZHC 1690 has expired with no party lodging an appeal.  There has been no agreement about the costs payable by EQC and Southern Response so the Court will now have to determine that issue.  Notwithstanding the recent MBIE report to the effect that 30 out of 32 hand selected properties that were jacked and packed by EQC were non-compliant with the building code apparently EQC still maintains that it can jack and pack this property.
