Tuesday 27 March 2012: 'We can get there........
Only if you have a good lawyer.... Ribbons of Hope should be labelled Ribbons of Expectation...in that it is incrediable the shit people have had to put up with in relation to their Insurance companies...TOWER seems to be the worst for nit picking on everything :-
1. Neighbour across the street - Red Zone - Tower insurance states their land is ok - like WTF -how can it be ok if they are in the red zone.I've seen the geo-tech report,they had a report done the same time we did.Its not ok, 18 months on they were hoping to have moved away and build a house outside the city and they are still here, nothing has happened and nothing seems to be happening in the short term - Tower is holding everything up. CERA called up and stated they were running out of time to leave...and yet the Insurance company is not enabling the to leave.
2. Neighbour down the road - Green Blue - two storied brick house with lovely view over the park ...Tower wants them to build a one story wooded house on a smaller footprint -what happened to ' like for like'
3.Resthomes and the elderly.The owners of the resthomes are fine but the residents are losing thousands and thousands of dollars making it difficult to go back into homes.
Why should the average everyday citizen have to fork out for Laywers fees, stress and strain over this situation when this situation should be more helpful and focused on assisting people instead of hassling them to a point of dispair....!!!
It makes us wonder what we will have to face when our number comes to the top of the list...give me strength!!!!!Our big fat politicians should get off their big fat asses and start helping instead of hindering people!!!
I'm sure the rest of New Zealand must be sick to death of hearing us whinge down here.People say that life is not always fair,however common decency can go a long long way.Certain groups of people are making heaps of money and others are fighting tooth and nail for a fair shake.It's just not right.
On top of all of this,the quakes keep coming.I'm sure everyone in ChCh was woken at 3am,even the insurance people,Ha
