Regarding the refusal to issue a code compliance certificate for a 16-year-old house with ply and batten cladding at 3 Mayroyd Terrace, Nelson
This determination arose from the decision of the authority to refuse to issue a code compliance certificate for a 16-year-old house because it was not satisfied that the house complied with certain clauses of the Building Code (First Schedule, Building Regulations 1992).
The matter to be determined was whether the authority was correct to refuse to issue a code compliance certificate.
In deciding this, the following was considered:
- Whether the external envelope to the house (the external envelope) complied with Clause B2 Durability and Clause E2 External Moisture of the Building Code;
- Whether the elements that make up the building work complied with Building Code Clause B2 Durability, taking into account the age of the house.
