Further Information

You have the option of approaching the Office of the Ombudsman and/or

Request for Information - The official holiday season information from OIA

Under the Official Information Act, we make and communicate decisions on
requests for official information as soon as it is reasonably practicable
and no later than 20 working days after requests are received (unless that
time is extended). 


However, according to the Office of the Ombudsman, the three weeks between
Christmas Day and 15 January (inclusive) the following year do not count
as working days. This means any OIA request submitted from now may take a
bit longer. 


The [2]working day calculator on the homepage of the
Ombudsman’s [3]website will help you count the time a request is likely to


EQC assessments have a very specific purpose and, for this reason, are
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 [4]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 are not a substitute for a pre-purchase inspection and should not be
solely relied upon by home buyers when doing thorough due diligence as
part of a potential property purchase.

You can read more about getting help to assess risks in an area affected
by earthquakes, floods or other natural disasters when buying a house on
the [5]Consumer Protection website.

The following information has been withheld:

o information relating to other properties to protect the privacy of the
respective owners under section 9(2)(a) of the OIA and section 53(b)
of the PA;
o personal information relating to the previous homeowners to protect
their privacy; under section 9(2)(a) of the OIA and section 53(b) of
the PA;
