2005/24: Refusal of a code compliance certificate for a building with a 'monolithic' cladding system: House 22
- Valid from
This is a determination of a dispute referred to the Chief Executive of the Department of Building and Housing under section 17 of the Building Act 1991 as amended by section 424 of the Building Act 2004.
The applicants are the two joint-owners of the property, and the other party is the territorial authority.
The application arises from the refusal by the territorial authority to issue a code compliance certificate for a 2-year old house unless changes are made to its monolithic cladding system.
This determination considers whether on reasonable grounds the external wall cladding as installed (“the cladding”), which is applied to all the external timber framed walls of the house, complies with the building code.
