Attn McPherson Property Management Landlords – Christchurch Earthquake Update

By Liam O'Boyle

The inspection of properties is continuing and emergency work has progressed quickly although a sharp aftershock on Wednesday 8th September has caused further and additional damage.

Any property where potential structural damage was reported by the tenant has been inspected and where a Structural Report is required we have ordered one.

All properties will be inspected, any damage photographed and owners will receive our initial report – the first of which are now being sent out. This will continue over the next two weeks. Anything of a serious nature has and will continue to be immediately updated to the owner.

In the worst affected area where liquefaction of the ground occurred some settlement and structural damage may take time to appear.

Fortunately the majority of the properties we manage are in the least affected areas.

We are so fortunate to have a great management team. The stress of living in Christchurch with the constant aftershocks creating sleepless nights do take a toll. I am also fortunate to be able to resource extra experienced staff too.

As previously stated our first priority is the safety of tenants also securing properties to minimize further damage.

This stage is well through with the assessment by the respective experts commencing and the reporting to owners on our initial property inspection.
