This determination arises from the decision of the authority to refuse to issue a code compliance certificate for a 12-year-old house because it was not satisfied that it complied with certain clauses of the Building Code (First Schedule, Building Regulations 1992).
The matters for determination are:
- Whether the cladding as installed on the house ('the cladding') complies with Clause B2 'Durability' and Clause E2 'External Moisture' of the Building Code;
- Whether the barrier on the first floor deck ('the deck barrier') complies with Clause F4 'Safety From Falling' of the Building Code;
- Whether the building elements comply with Clause B2 'Durability' of the Building Code, taking into account the age of the building work.
The building consent covered moving an existing house towards the street, and the construction of a new house in the new rear section. No matters have been raised by the parties with regard to the existing house, and this determination is therefore limited to the new house.
