Auckland Council and James Hardie New Zealand argued in the Court of Appeal against a High Court ruling that apartment owners could join a leaky building lawsuit after the expiry of the 10-year limit on claims by piggybacking on claimants within the same complex who had met the deadline.

Appealing the decision, Auckland Council counsel Stephen Price said the wording of section 37 of the legislation showed any claim must have been brought by the 10th anniversary of the code compliance certificate being issued, and "nothing in other sections can be read as damaging that."

Mr Price said the Weathertight Homes Act was "not about granting paramountcy of money recovery," rather it was about making the claims process efficient.

Justices France, Lynton Stevens and Helen Winkelmann reserved their decision.
