This determination arises from the decision of the authority to refuse to issue a code compliance certificate for the 18-year-old house, because it is not satisfied that the building work complies with certain clauses of the Building Code.
The authority's concerns about the compliance of the building work relate largely to the weathertightness of the building envelope and moisture problems related to the two bathrooms.
The matter to be determined is therefore whether the authority was correct to refuse to issue a code compliance certificate. In deciding this, it must be considered the following:
- whether the external building envelope of the house complies with Clause B2 Durability and Clause E2 External Moisture of the Building Code, and
- whether the showers comply with Clause E3 Internal Moisture.
