2010/127: Refusal to issue a code compliance certificate for a 6 year-old addition to a house
- Valid from
This determination arose from the decision of the authority to refuse to issue a code compliance certificate for a 6-year-old addition to a house, because it was not satisfied that the building work complied with certain clauses of the Building Code.
The authority's primary concerns about the compliance of the building work related to its age and to the weathertightness of the cladding.
The matter to be determined was therefore whether the authority was correct to refuse to issue a code compliance certificate.
In deciding this, the following were considered:
- Whether the external building envelope of the addition complied with Clause B2 Durability and Clause E2 External Moisture of the Building Code.
- Whether the addition complied with the remaining relevant clauses of the Building Code;
- Whether the building elements complied with Clause B2 Durability of the Building Code, taking into account the age of the addition.
