Abstract In the 1995 Hanshin-Awaji earthquake, enormous numbers of buildings and dwellings were partially or fully destroyed. It is critically important for property owners either to repair and strengthen an old house, or to demolish and build a new one. This study aims to find factors affecting decision making along those lines. Factors discussed are damage evaluation systems, demolition policies, public mortgage loans, and consulting services. Disaster relief measures in future cases need to extend to technical information regarding dwelling recovery and also to assist in the repairing and strengthening of damaged property.
