Hi, Really feel sorry for the residents living in this block in Lidcombe. From people's experience, what is the likely outcome for this sorry scenario? Insurer rejects storm-damaged Lidcombe building claim because of numerous defects Hundreds of residents left homeless after a storm ripped off the roof of their Lidcombe apartment block have suffered another blow, with their insurer rejecting their multi-million dollar claim. Insurance giant AIG has denied payouts to repair the building - developed by controversial Auburn councillor Ronney Oueik - because its expert found it did not comply with the Building Code of Australia. Structural engineer Roderick Broune concluded the roof was riddled with defects and that, had it met basic standards, it would have withstood the violent weather on Saturday, January 30.
