2010/042: Determination regarding the refusal to issue a code compliance certificate for a 6 year-old block of four semi-detached townhouses
- Valid from
This determination arises from the decision of the authority to refuse to issue a code compliance certificate for a 6-year-old building, because the building is part of a multi-unit development and it is not satisfied that the building work complies with certain clauses of the Building Code.
The matter to be determined is therefore whether the authority's decision to refuse to issue a code compliance certificate was correct. In deciding this matter, it must be considered:
- Whether the claddings as installed comply with Clauses B2 Durability and E2 External Moisture;
- Whether certain building elements in Block J, other than the claddings, comply with the other relevant clauses of the Building Code;
- Whether the authority, in response to the owners' request, could amend the single building consent for the development, which includes Block J, so that Block J has its own separate building consent.
