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 alteration and extension to an existing house unless changes are made to its monolithic cladding system.
The question to be determined is whether on reasonable grounds that the external wall cladding as installed, which is applied to the majority of the external timber framed walls of the house, complies with the building code.
