Wellington City Council has taken court action against a builder in order to recover money paid out to settle a leaky building claim. The property owner had been paid after a settlement.

The house was issued a code of compliance certificate in 2005 after the council as assured issue raised had been addressed, including waterproofing work.

With claimants opting to go into litigation with council rather than take the Government-promoted assistance package, councils have had to arm themselves with lawyers and other experts. 

Auckland has reportedly paid more than $23 million in expert fees for the leaky home crisis in Auckland, which has gone to lawyers and other experts since the formation of the Auckland Council in November 2010. These experts include quantity surveyors, valuers and architects.

The council has paid only $1.27 million under the governments $1 billion leaky building rescue package. This included a $147,000 payment to a west Auckland home owner for a leaky property that had been issued a code compliance certificate.

The supreme court has recently increased the scope of a council's liability in certain circumstances saying that councils owe a duty of care to owners of buildings regardless of what the building was used for. Previous decisions had drawn the distinction between residential and commercial properties.
