The matter arises from the authoritys decision to refuse to issue code compliance certificates for a 17-year old house and an 11-year old extension because it was not satisfied that they complied with certain clauses of the Building Code. The authority's primary concerns about the compliance of the building relate to the weathertightness of the cladding. The matter to be determined is whether the authoritys decision to refuse to issue the code compliance certificates was correct. In deciding this, the following must be considered: 1-Whether the external envelope to the dwelling and extension complies with Clause B2 Durability and Clause E2 External Moisture of the Building Code; 2-Whether the elements that make up the building work comply with Clause B2 Durability of the Building Code, taking into account the age of the building work.
