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 four year old alterations to a house because it was not satisfied that elements of the building work complied with certain clauses of the Building Code and that the work was not carried out in accord with the Building Consent.
The authoritys concerns about the compliance of the alterations related to the weathertightness of the tiled deck addition to the house.
The matter to be 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 building work.
In deciding this matter, it was be considered whether the tiled deck as installed on the building complied with Clause E2 External Moisture and Clause B2 Durability of the Building Code.
