2012/040: Refusal to issue a code compliance certificate for a ten year-old house completed under the supervision of a building certifier
- Valid from
The matter to be determined is whether the authority correctly exercised its powers in respect of its refusal to issue a code compliance certificate. Subsequent to the completion of the building work remedial work was undertaken for which no consent was sought. Therefore in making my decision the following must be considered: 1-whether a building consent was required for the unconsented remedial work; 2-whether the consented building work complies with the relevant clauses of the Building Code; 3-whether the remedial building work complies with the relevant clauses of the Building Code; 4-whether a code compliance certificate, or some other certificate, is the most appropriate certificate to be issued in due course.
