This determination arises from the decision of the authority to refuse to issue a code compliance certificate for a 14-year-old house because it was not satisfied that it complied with certain clauses of the Building Code (First Schedule, Building Regulations 1992).
The matters for determination are:
- Whether the cladding as installed on the house ('the cladding') complies with Clause B2 Durability and Clause E2 External Moisture of the Building Code;
- Whether the western foundation wall complies with Clause B1 Structure of the Building Code, taking into account the lack of an engineer's inspections of the construction of this part of the foundations;
- Whether the building elements comply with Clause B2 Durability of the Building Code, taking into account the age of the building work.
