This determination arises from the decision of the authority to issue a notice to fix for the 9-year-old house because the authority is not satisfied that the house complies with certain clauses of the Building Code. In the application for determination, the agent sought a determination on Item 5 of the notice to fix, which relates to concerns about the weathertightness of the external wall cladding system. The matter to be determined is therefore whether the authority was correct in its decision to issue a notice to fix with respect to Item 5 on that notice. In deciding this matter, it must be considered whether the external claddings to the house (the claddings) comply with Clause B2 Durability and Clause E2 External Moisture of the Building Code.
