This determination arises from the decision of the authority to refuse to issue a code compliance certificate for an 11-year-old house because it was not satisfied that the building work complies with certain clauses of the Building Code (First Schedule, Building Regulations 1992).
The matter to be determined is therefore whether the authority was correct in its decision to refuse to issue a code compliance certificate for the house. In deciding this, it must be considered whether the items identified in the authority's letter of refusal comply with the relevant clauses of the Building Code that was current at the time the consent was issued.
This includes whether the external building envelope complies with Clause B2 Durability and Clause E2 External Moisture; the building envelope includes all the components of the external moisture management system (such as the wall claddings, windows, joinery, roof claddings and flashings) as well as the way these components have been installed and work together.
