This determination arises from the decision of the authority to refuse to issue a code compliance certificate, and to issue a notice to fix for 7-year-old alterations and additions to a house because it is not satisfied that the building work complies with the requirements of certain clauses of the Building Code (First Schedule, Building Regulations 1992).
The matters for determination are:
- Whether the external envelope of the house complies with Clause B2 Durability and Clause E2 External Moisture of the Building Code;
- Whether certain building elements comply with Building Code Clauses B1 Structure, E1 Surface Water and F4 Safety from falling.
The notice to fix cites contraventions of Clauses B1, B2, D1, D2, E1, E2, E3, F4, F7, G4, G12, G13 and H1 of the Building Code.
There are no specific items within the notice that relate directly to Clauses D1, D2, E3, F7, G4, G12, G13 and H1.
