2010/022: Refusal to issue code compliance certificates and the issue of three notices to fix for a 15 year-old house with subsequent additions
- Valid from
- Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment
This determination arose from the decision of the authority to refuse to issue code compliance certificates and to issue notices to fix for the house because it was not satisfied that it complied with certain clauses of the Building Code.
The matter to be determined was therefore whether the authority was correct in its decision to refuse to issue the three code compliance certificates.
In deciding this, the notices to fix were considered in regard to the following:
- Whether the external claddings to the house complied with Clause B2 Durability and Clause E2 External Moisture of the Building Code;
- Whether the elements that make up the building work complied with Building Code Clause B2 Durability, taking into account the age of the house.
