This determination arises from the decision of the authority to refuse to issue code compliance certificates for an 18-year-old house and garage, a 14-year-old pergola and porch addition, and an 11-year-old garage/workshop because it was not satisfied that the building work complied with the Building Code.
The authority's primary concerns about the compliance of the building relate to the weathertightness of the cladding and the age of the building work. The matter to be determined is therefore whether the authority was correct to refuse to issue the three code compliance certificates. In deciding this, the following must be considered:
- whether the external envelopes of the buildings comply with Clauses E2 External Moisture and B2 Durability of the Building Code. The external envelope includes the cladding of each of the buildings, their configuration and components, junctions with other building elements, formed openings, and penetrations;
- 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.
