Support Agencies Include:
Temporary Accommodation Service (TAS)
Everyone who has had to leave their home is advised to register with TAS, even if you have a place to stay right now. Registering with TAS does not commit you to anything, but it does cover you in 3-6 months’ time if your current circumstances change. The service, run by MBIE, is working to provide a variety of temporary housing solutions including portable cabins and motor homes. These have allowed some families to live on their own properties while waiting for repairs.
Residential Advisory Service (RAS)
Dealing with insurers can be time consuming and confusing. RAS offers independent advisers who can help you understand your insurance policy and what you are entitled to. RAS can also advocate for you if you have valid concerns with what your insurance company is offering.
