Hi,

 

I live up a RoW with 8 other houses and the fibre install was classed as a category 3 install. This has now been canceled as someone(probably one of 2 houses with absentee landlords, I got confirmation from everyone else) failed to give consent for the work to be done.

 

A few questions

 

  • Is there a stand down before I can apply again?
  • What happens if my neighbors apply for fibre?
  • Anything else I can do?

Thanks

If you or your neighbours decide to apply again before the stand-down is up, you will need to include with the application signed consents of everyone in your ROW, otherwise Chorus will reject your application outright.

 

If you apply after the stand-down, you still need to obtain the consents of everyone before you can get fibre.

 

So either way, you're at the mercy of those two landlords.

There is a stand-down of 6 months if consent has been declined. During that time any properties affected by the lack of consent (ie any properties on the ROW) would not be able to get fibre either.

 

There's really not much you can do - Category 3 builds are classed as such because there are major works to be done, so all affected properties have to agree to it. If you can't get the 2 remaining landlords to give consent in writing or at https://chorus.co.nz/consent,you'll just have to hope for the best.





Any opinions are my own and do not represent those of 2degrees

Thank you

Do the current consents already given stay or will I have to get everyone to resubmit?
