2015/063: Regarding the refusal to issue code compliance certificates for 2 adjoining houses with monolithic cladding
- Valid from
This determination arises from the decision of the authority to refuse to issue code compliance certificates for a 14-year-old house and an adjoining 10-year-old house because it was not satisfied that the building work complied with certain clauses of the Building Code (First Schedule, Building Regulations 1992).
The authority's concerns regarding compliance of the building work primarily relate to the weathertightness and durability of the wall and roof claddings.
The matter to be determined is therefore whether the authority was correct in its decision to refuse to issue code compliance certificates for the two houses.
In deciding this, consideration was given to whether the external building envelope the adjoining houses complies with Clause B2 Durability and Clause E2 External Moisture of the Building Code that was in force at the time the building consents were granted.
