  • Issues valuers face when using seismic information

  • How to evaluate and report on seismic performance

Expressions of Interest: Mixed Tenure Residential Housing

Housing New Zealand wishes to bring to your attention a new and rare opportunity to take a fresh approach to providing different homes for different people within a prime piece of suburban real estate.

Housing New Zealand provides safe and affordable homes for people in greatest need. As New Zealand’s largest landlord, we own or lease about 69,000 properties, housing around 200,000 people.

Our vision for the future is that state houses are part of healthy, sustainable, mixed communities including state, social and privately owned properties.

Housing New Zealand Corporation (HNZC) owns a prime development site in Parnell. The 5,552m2 property sits within four street frontages and is currently in 11 individually titled parcels.

With a prime site close to the Auckland CBD, the challenge is to create a mix of quality privately owned and rented housing that makes a positive addition to the neighbourhood.

We need a partner to take the project from start to finish and are open to options on how that can be achieved commercially. The outcome will help set the benchmark for future Housing New Zealand developments.

Interested parties must comply with the submission requirements contained in the Housing New Zealand EOI document. This document is available for download from www.gets.govt.nz.

Responses to this Request for Expression of Interest must be received by 12 noon, 30 September 2013.

26/05/2015 : Valuation of properties with increased flood vulnerability (IFV) under the EQC Act

As a result of Land movement in Canterbury as a consequence of the Canterbury earthquake sequence some 10,000 properties were assessed as potentially having Increased Flooding Vulnerability (IFV). The change in a propertys vulnerability to flooding as a result of subsidence to insured land gives rise to a claim under the Earthquake Commission Act. This is unique in the world.

Settlement of these claims where repair is neither feasible or consentable is to be by a recently developed Valuation methodology known as Diminution of Value (DOV). Dave Townsend FNZIV FPINZ and Supervising Valuer for EQC was instrumental in the development and implementation of the methodology, which is expected to involve up to 20 Canterbury Valuers in the assessment process.

In the course of their work it is likely most Christchurch Valuers can expect to be questioned by their clients on the DOV process and its outcomes.
