Legal advice on earthquake issues

17 Nov 2016 Construction and infrastructure, Health and safety law, Insurance Law, Property and real estate law

Since the Christchurch earthquakes, Kensington Swan has developed considerable expertise in addressing a wide range of issues relating to earthquakes and other natural disasters.

We provide legal advice to:
  • landlords and tenants on issues relating to damage, destruction and cordons (e.g. reinstatement, rent abatement, insurance, and lease termination)
  • PCBUs and officers on health and safety issues (including asbestos), and related employment law issues
  • vendors and purchasers on the effect of damage in the context of agreements for sale and purchase
  • owners, tenants, contractors, and consultants on potential claims arising from non-compliance with earthquake and/or building standards
  • owners and occupiers on interim and replacement occupancy/lease arrangements, and construction issues
