The matter to be determined is whether the authority was correct to refuse to issue a code compliance certificate for the work. In deciding this, the following must be considered: 1-Whether the external claddings to the building (the claddings) comply with Clause B2 Durability and Clause E2 External Moisture of the Building Code; 2-Whether the house complies with Clause B1 Structure of the Building Code, taking into account its structural performance during earthquake activity since completion. Although the authority identified other items requiring attention, these are in the process of being resolved between the parties; and the applicants have restricted the application for this determination to the exterior envelope and the structure of the house. This determination is therefore limited to the matters outlined above.
