    Building and homeowners are taking action against Carter Holt Harvey over leaky building products

    Building and homeowners are taking action against Carter Holt Harvey over leaky building products


    They've filed action in the High Court at Auckland, seeking at least 40
    million dollars in damages relating to "weather-tightness" issues with
    Shadowclad.

    Lawyer Adina Thorn says the 117 homeowners have joined forces to take the
    action.

    It follows issues raised by TVNZ's Fair Go programme, and the Ministry of
    Education's decision to take legal action over 800 leaky school buildings.

    Thorn says the claim could round up to around 50-million dollars in the wake
    of recent developments.
