Kiwibank says it's willing and able to facilitate new house insurance policies in the Wellington and Marlborough regions struck by recent earthquakes.
In a statement Kiwibank said it remained committed to customers by accepting applications for new business in Central New Zealand including the Wellington and Marlborough regions.
"An exclusion zone severely affects the ability of people to buy and sell houses and to have adequate security in the event of further quakes," said Kiwibank head of insurance, David Chamberlain.
"Kiwibank can facilitate new house insurance policies (underwritten by Tower) in these regions."
Back in April Kiwibank said it would "facilitate applications" for insurance underwritten by Tower from Christchurch property owners planning to build new homes in areas zoned Technical Category 3 following the devastating 2010 and 2011 earthquakes there.
