This determination arises from the decision of the authority to refuse to issue a code compliance certificate and instead issue a notice to fix for the applicants' 16-year-old house, because it was not satisfied that the house complied with various 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, it must be considered whether the house complies with the relevant clauses of the Building Code. The notice to fix outlines requirements for durability of building elements, taking into account the age of the building work. The notices state that an application for a modification of the requirements could be applied for to allow durability periods to commence from the dates of substantial completion.
