Financial Assistance Package – a work in progress

The Weathertight Homes Resolution Service ("WHRS") financial assistance package (commonly known as the FAP) was passed into law earlier this year. It is intended to assist homeowners repair their leaky homes without having to resort to expensive and time-consuming legal action.

Eligibility for the FAP is initially based on the same criteria currently used to determine eligibility under the WHRS, meaning that the property must be a residential dwelling, there must be water entry causing damage, and the dwelling must have been built or altered with the 10 years immediately preceding the date the claim is lodged.
