2015/049: Regarding the refusal to issue a code compliance certificate for alterations to an existing house
- Valid from
This determination arises from the decision of the authority to refuse to issue a code compliance certificate for alterations to an existing house because the authority was not satisfied that part of the alteration work complied with certain clauses of the Building Code (First Schedule, Building Regulations 1992).
The authority's concerns about the compliance relate to whether an outlet from an existing deck will remain watertight for the period set out in Clause B2.
The matter to be determined is therefore whether the authority was correct to refuse to issue the code compliance certificate. In deciding this matter, it must be considered whether the altered outlet from the existing deck complies with Clause E2 External moisture and Clause B2 Durability of the Building Code.
