The determination arises from the applicants wish to obtain a code compliance certificate for the house. It was the applicants' understanding that the authority would refuse to issue a code compliance certificate if such an application was made. The authority has not formally been asked to consider the code compliance of the house at this time, although it appears it was asked to consider this in 1995. The matter to be determined is whether the house complies with Building Code. In deciding this, the following must be considered: 1-Whether the house complies with the relevant clauses of the Building Code; 2-Whether the elements that make up the house comply with Building Code Clause B2 Durability, taking into account the age of the house.
