Stucko or Plasterboard houses - Banks Won't Sell Your House (if selling) with Stuck O Around Your House

Matt from Henderson

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?

MORE garden photos to cheer everybody up on this wet day. =D Taken in between rain showers. =D

Sharon from Te Atatu South

Photo 1: A white hollyhock flower off my OTHER (NON-PINK) hollyhock bush. =D
Photo 2: My pink Little Miss Perfect roses (shrub bought from Bunnings, of course). =D
Photo 3: A white (or very pale purple) I-don't-know-what flower, but it is very pretty, so I thought I'd take a photo of it - it's the same as the unknown pink flowers I've photographed before, but white. =D
Photo 4: My snapdragons (I think). =D
Photo 5: My beans (all sorts) and pumpkins coming up. =D They are butternuts, I think - I planted the seeds from cut-up pumpkins I'd bought for dinner, then put the scraps (including the seeds) in the compost - YES, you can grow all sorts of pumpkin plants from these, I'm pretty sure that's how one of my previous, VERY prolifically-fruiting butternuts grew - from a seed in the compost!!!!!!!! =D So HERE'S hoping I get some this - or next - year!!!!!!!! =D
Photo 6: Some of my pumpkin seedlings. =D Butternuts, I think - my favourite!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! =D Hehehe. =D
Photo 7: Two of my scarlet runner bean seedlings!!!!! =D Yay - I can FINALLY get them to grow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! =D AND, what's AMAZING is that NONE show signs of rot. =O The trick is to plant them, and your pumpkins, in a raised bed WITH GOOD SOIL, and then BOTH your pumpkins AND your beans will be healthy - THIS is what I have learned from this. =D Heheheh!!!!!!!! =D

A male Nyala antelope at Wellington Zoo got spooked/frightened by the fireworks and ran into a fence they believe, and they found it dead the next morning:
