This determination considered building work done without consent to an existing house: the building work included the replacement of insulation and external wall cladding, installation of jack trusses, and affixing cladding over an existing cladding.
The determination discussed whether the building work was exempt from the need to obtain a building consent under Schedule 1 of the Building Act, the drafting of the notice to fix and the remedies, and whether a building consent authority can withdraw a notice to fix.
