Weathertight Homes Resolution Services (Financial Assistance Package) Amendment Bill


Proposed amendment

Phil Twyford, in Committee, to move the following amendment:

Clause 6: new section 125B

To add the following paragraph to the definition of qualifying claimant (after line 29 on page 7):

  • (c) has purchased a dwellinghouse with knowledge that it is a leaky building will not be considered a qualifying claimant.


Explanatory note

This Supplementary Order Paper amends the Weathertight Homes Resolution Services (Financial Assistance Package) Amendment Bill by inserting a new paragraph to prevent speculators from receiving the financial assistance while not restricting those genuinely affected homeowners from receiving assistance.
