This determination arose from the decision of the authority to refuse to issue a code compliance certificate and to issue a notice to fix for a 10-year-old house because it was not satisfied that it complied with certain clauses of the Building Code.
The authority had concerns about the compliance of the building work relating primarily to the weathertightness of the exterior building envelope.
The matter determined was whether the authority was correct to refuse to issue a code compliance certificate and to issue the notice to fix.
The following were considered:
- Whether the external claddings to the house complied with Clause B2 Durability and Clause E2 External Moisture of the Building Code.
- Whether the elements that made up the building work complied with Building Code Clause B2 Durability, taking into account the age of the house.
