Hi Neighbourly, I heard something from my family member which will shock people with Plasterboard houses or Stuck O!

Apparently, anyone now who has got Plasterboard or Stuck O houses, if you want to sell your house, the banks won't let you sell your house because of the Plasterboard or Stuck O that is around and outside of your house. Not sure if this is New Zealand issue or maybe just Auckland, not sure on the exact details though.

The picture here is just an example of what a plasterboard or Stuck O is like.

Matt

Has anyone got further ideas or more in detail about Plasterboard houses and why banks can't sell with this material?
