    1. Council rules can change, so you could suddenly be stuck unable to subdivide
    2. The banks (and valuers) view it differently so you...

    Thanks everyone. They have found non-earthquake cover, but not much good when earthquakes are the major risk. Apparently unless you have earthquake cover with a private insurer, EQC coverage also...

    I have a theory that suburb values are likely to be significantly changed. Those that came through unscathed, with no soil damage will have much higher growth than those that liquefied. I see it as...
