About 150 residents of the Kate Sheppard Retirement Village in Christchurch were forced to abandon their units when the village was damaged in the February 22 earth- quake. They have since been advised they are unlikely to recover the value of their homes. Like many retirement villages in New Zealand residents at Kate Sheppard had bought a licence to occupy their units for life, while own- ership was retained by the business. Residents also paid a weekly fee for costs at the village, including insurance. Following the quake they have been notified they are entitled only to the original price of the unit, less a management fee, the same amount that would have been paid out if they had terminated the contract or died. But because of the effects of infla- tion the payment is expected to be less than half of market value for some, leaving most unable to buy elsewhere. Residents are now banding to- gether to take legal action to try to recover the value of their homes. As a result of the case the Sum- merset Group, which operates 12 retirement villages across the country, including Summerset at the Course in Trentham, says it has restructured its insurance to cover residents to the full market value in the event of a natural disaster. The group says it is the first in the country to make the changes follow- ing coverage highlighting the gaps in provision within the industry in the wake of the earthquake. Our whole community has been asking itself what we would do if we were in the position of Christ- church,'' Summerset at the Course manager Margaret Sharp says. This is a very important question and Kate Sheppard shows us our residents are incredibly vulnerable.'' Chief executive officer of Summer- set, Norah Barlow, says the Kate Sheppard case had a big impact. We need to ensure a fair solution for residents in the event of a natural disaster . . . these elderly people [at the Kate Sheppard village] are effectively starting again.'' The company has made plans for Summerset residents to be provided with accommodation immediately after a disaster, and the company would ideally rebuild as close to the original site as possible.
