Regarding the refusal to issue a code compliance certificate for a 13-year-old house with monolithic cladding at 45 Stott Drive, Darfield
This determination arises from the decision of the authority to refuse to issue a code compliance certificate for the house because it was not satisfied that the building work complied with certain clauses of the Building Code (Schedule 1, Building Regulations 1992). The authority's concerns relate to durability due to the age of consent and that the authority would remain liable for a further ten years from the date of issue of any code compliance certificate.
The matter to be determined is therefore the authority's exercise of its powers of decision when it refused to issue a code compliance certificate for the house for the reasons given to the applicants.
In making this decision I must consider whether the building work, in particular the external envelope, complies with the Building Code that was in force at the time the building consent was issued.
