Fletchers EQR is overseeing the repairs of about 80,000 homes damaged by Canterbury's earthquakes.

Tens of thousands of homeowners are still waiting for their repairs to begin, many in extremely difficult circumstances.

However, 40,000 homes, about half of all those damaged, have had their repairs complete.

If you are amongst those homeowners, we would like to hear from you.

How did the repair process go? Do you have advice for others?

Were your repairs well-managed? Did you encounter diligent project managers and expert tradesmen?

Or was it a challenge from start to finish? Did you end up in dispute? Tell us how that process worked, or did not work for you, and if you have learnt lessons that would be helpful to others.

Perhaps you are amongst a growing number of homeowners who have opted out, or have had extra rennovations carried out beyond the quake repairs. Tell us how that went.
