This determination arises from the decision of the authority to refuse to issue a code compliance certificate for a 17-year-old house because it was not satisfied that the building work complied with certain clauses of the Building Code. The matter to be determined is therefore whether the authority was correct in its decision to refuse to issue a code compliance certificate for the house. In deciding this, it must be considered: 1-Whether the external claddings comply with Clause B2 Durability and Clause E2 External Moisture of the Building Code; 2-Whether other items identified in the notice to fix comply with relevant Building Code clauses: namely Clauses E1 Surface Water, E3 Internal Moisture, F2 Hazardous Building Materials, F4 Safety from Falling, G12 Water Supplies and G13 Foul Water. This determination is limited to items identified during the authority's final inspection of the house; other building elements associated with clauses identified in Matter 2 are not considered in this determination. The notice to fix also cited Clause G7 Natural Light, but the authority has since stated that this clause should not have been included in the notice.
