2010/045: Refusal to issue a code compliance certificate for 13 year-old alterations and additions to a house with monolithic cladding
- Valid from
This determination arises from the decision of the authority to refuse to issue a code compliance certificate for 13-year-old alterations and additions to a house, because it is not satisfied that the building work complies with certain clauses of the Building Code (First Schedule, Building Regulations 1992).
Based on correspondence between the parties, the authority's primary concerns about the compliance of the building work appear to relate to its age and to the weathertightness of the cladding.
The matter to be determined is therefore whether the authority was correct to refuse to issue a code compliance certificate for the work.
In deciding this, it must be considered:
- Whether the cladding as installed on the alterations and additions complies with Clause B2 Durability and Clause E2 External Moisture 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.
