31 July 2012
This weekly update is being distributed throughout the Diocese and uploaded to our website (www.anglicanlife.org.nz/resources ) to keep people informed on matters of insurance, repairs, and building works.
From Gavin Holley, Chief Operations Officer:
The Church Property Trustees (CPT) have received requests for clarification of the roll that TPA Godfreys play in the insurance claims process.
TPA Godfreys are independent Chartered Loss Adjusters. They are the ‘bridge’ between the policyholder (CPT) and the insurer (ACS) and their objective is to establish an outcome that is fair and reasonable to all parties. Most loss adjusters have a background in insurance and often have qualifications in accounting, engineering, science or business. Loss adjusters may complete further training to become chartered loss adjusters and members of the Australasian Institute of Chartered Loss Adjusters (AICLA).
From Liz Clarke, CPT Property Manager:
For those who don’t know yet, CPT have engaged an Irishman by the name of Aidan de Faoite, to assist me with the diocese’s claims. So when you ring up and hear those dulcet Irish tones, it’s not a wrong number, don’t hang up! Now, over to Aidan.
From Aidan de Faoite, CPT Project Manager:
Vicarage Update July 2012
Hi all, initially I will be looking at all of the vicarage (EQC) claims. As you will appreciate, with the number of claims throughout the diocese and the overall number of claims EQC has to deal with, it is a slow process. However, progress is being made and as we go through the process, the more successes we are achieving.
To date we have had nine repairs completed and we have four more with imminent starts. Watch this space.
Heat replacement sources are also being looked at, so if anyone has any questions or is struggling with the EQR replacement heat program, come back to me. No promises, but we will go into bat for you.
Further good news is that EQC have now raised the lower repair cash settlement figure from $10K to $15K. Once paid out, this will enable CPT to progress repairs much more quickly. These payouts are expected to commence within weeks.
The New Brighton vicarage, and just recently the Sumner-Redcliffs vicarage, are both in the Red Zone so we are going through the Government process to realize these assets and enable the parishes to move on.
I can be contacted on 03-348-5129 or you can email any vicarage queries to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will endeavour to reply to all queries.
As we say in Ireland, “Go n’eirí an bóthar leat”, May the road rise with you.
