2008/067: Determination regarding the code compliance of a house
- Valid from
This determination arises from the decision of the authority to refuse to issue a code compliance certificate for a 5-year-old house because it was not satisfied that it complied with certain clauses of the Building Code. The authority has also made a late submission that the durability of the house should be included in this determination. The authority has raised no matters relating to other elements in the building, therefore this determination is limited to matters relating to the exterior cladding and the durability provisions. The matters for determination are: 1- Whether the claddings as installed on the house comply with Clauses B2 and E2 (see Sections 177 and 188 of the Act); 2- Whether the building elements comply with Clause B2 Durability of the Building Code, taking into account the age of the building work.
