This determination arises from the decisions of the authority to refuse to issue a code compliance certificate and to issue a notice to fix for a 9-year-old addition and alterations to a house (the addition) 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 relate primarily to the weathertightness of the exterior building envelope. The matter to be determined is therefore 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 addition.
In deciding this matter, it must be considered:
- Whether the external claddings to the addition (the claddings) comply with Clause B2 Durability and Clause E2 External Moisture of the Building Code;
- Whether the gully traps comply with Clause G13 Foul Water in regard to the ingress of surface water into the drains.
The notice to fix also cites contraventions of Clauses B1 Structure and E1 Surface Water, although there are no specific identified items relating to these clauses.
