I can confirm the claims for the above address were cash settled and were
not referred to Fletcher Earthquake Recovery (EQR) for a managed repair.
Therefore, I am unable to provide repair documents, as requested.
If you require the ‘sign off’ documents, please obtain this from the
contractor who managed the repairs at the property, I apologise for the
inconvenience that this may cause.
I have however, attached a copy of the EQC Scope of Works (costed) and
Statement of Claim (uncosted).
Please note that the financial figures contained in this Scope of Works
document are estimate figures, and may not reflect any payments received
as settlement for the claim.

limited in their use. The purpose of an EQC building assessment is to
record the natural disaster damage which has occurred to residential
buildings (as defined in the EQC Act
EQC uses this assessment to create a Scope of Works that details the
strategy for repairing the natural disaster damage (only) and the
estimated cost of that repair.
They’re not a substitute for a pre-purchase inspection, and should not be
solely relied on by home buyers when doing thorough due diligence as part
of a potential property purchase.
