There are hopes extra funding to repair quake-damaged homes will end a difficult situation.

The Government is spending another $300 million bailing out Cantabrians who bought improperly repaired houses with damages above EQC's $100 thousand cap.

Earthquake Commission Minister Grant Robertson told Chris Lynch taxpayers have already shelled out $400 million for under-cap repairs.

He says this is about finishing the job.

Robertson says this is the right thing to do to help everyone move on.
