    A house that isn't insurable is deemed as "As Is Where Is", meaning that the insurance companies see it as too much of a risk to insure if there's another earthquake in Christchurch. In effect, this is a significant risk for you, the purchaser, that you may lose the value of the house if another shake occurs and the home is deemed irreparable. The solution is to get the house insurable as fast as possible post-purchase, and this is where you can make financial gains. The definition of As Is Where Is, is that the item for sale is sold in its existing state (As Is) and that you, the purchaser accepts all faults with the item apparent or not. Put simply; the buyer is responsible for all future issues with the As Is Where Is House. This is why you need to partner with Wrightway, a house flipping company experienced in Christchurch earthquake repairs.
