This determination arises from the decision of the authority to refuse to issue a code compliance certificate for a seven-year-old house because it was not satisfied that it complied with Clauses B2 and E2 of the Building Code (First Schedule, Building Regulations 1992).
The matter to be determined is whether the decision of the authority to refuse to issue a code compliance certificate was correct. In making this decision, it must be considered:
- Whether the external envelope of the house complies with Clauses B2 Durability and E2 External Moisture of the Building Code;
- Whether the elements that make up the building work comply with Clause B2 Durability of the Building Code, taking into account the age of the building work.
The applicants have advised that the initial reason the code compliance certificate was declined was because the authority had not received the pressure test certificate. This matter is not in dispute and is not considered further in this determination.
