The Government's leaky home assistance scheme raised financial fears for victims.

An amended version of the Weathertight Homes Resolution Services (Financial Assistance Package) Amendment Bill is back from the MPs' committee chaired but a commentary flagged warnings, raising doubts about whether rotting home disaster victims could even pay half the repair bill.

The committee was also concerned about the tight timeframe. Eligible owners would have to apply within five years of the assistance measures becoming operational, but many may not be able to afford to opt into the scheme.

In the greater Auckland area, the council estimates 3300 properties had active leaky-home claims.

The leaky home law changes would mean the Government would pay 25 percent of the repair bill, Council would pay 25 percent with the homeowner picking up 50 percent of the tab.

Government talks with banks have hit a wall of the issue of whether Government would share losses with the banks from defaulting home owners.
