This determination arises from the decision of the authority to refuse to issue a code compliance certificate for a 13-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 to refuse to issue a code compliance certificate. In deciding this, consideration was given to whether the items identified by the authority comply with the relevant clauses of the Building Code that was in force at the time the consent was issued; specifically Clauses B1 Structure, B2 Durability, E1 Surface water, E2 External Moisture and F2 Hazardous building materials.
