- Valid from
- Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment
This determination arose from the decisions of the authority to refuse to issue a code compliance certificate and to issue a notice to fix for a 7-year-old house because it was not satisfied that the building work complied with certain clauses of the Building Code.
The authority's concerns about the compliance of the building work related primarily to the weathertightness of the exterior building envelope.
The matter determined was whether the authority was correct in its decisions to refuse to issue a code compliance certificate and to issue a notice to fix for the house.
It was must be considered whether the external building envelope of the house complied with Clause B2 Durability and Clause E2 External Moisture.
