We Offer All Five Compliance Certificates COC's, Cape Town and Surrounding Areas.

The Techno Group has been providing Compliance Certificates, COC's, to the greater Cape Town property industry since 1998.

Initially the only two compliance certificates required were the Electrical Compliance Certificate and Beetle Certificates, but recent legislation has seen the addition of three more Certificates:

Water Certificate

Gas Certificate.

Electric Fence Certificate.

Meaning that most Cape Town homes will require a minimum of two Compliance Certificates, electrical and water and possibly as many as five compliance certificates depending on what installations you have in your home, but generally the beetle electrical and water certificates are what will be required for most Cape Town homes.

Our Happy Customers.

Dear Leigh-Zanne, I just want to write to tell you that I think Techno Group is very efficient! Originally, the electrical and plumbing teams swarmed around our house to determine what needed to be done! They worked very quickly and efficiently. You were very efficient in coming back to us to let us know the dates and times that the electricians and plumbers would be on site. On Wednesday three electricians arrived – at the specified time and again they worked very quickly and efficiently. They were polite and helpful. When they took the stove out to check wiring, they even cleaned underneath the stove! I was prepared to do it, but they wouldn’t let me, and even got some stubborn spots off with Handy Andy. We were very impressed. They went round the whole house afterwards with a dustpan and brush. Thank you. Yesterday, the plumbers arrived. Same thing. They did their work so efficently and quickly. Up in the roof for the geyser, into the garage, the laundry, etc. Again, they cleaned up so neatly, again with dustpan and brush. We were really impressed. Would you please make sure that the Municipality has been advised that they do not need to come out to our property – as we were able to locate the stop-cock! Many thanks. We look forward to receiving the Compliance Certificates in due course. I have copied Gary at Harcourts on this e-mail. Kind regards,

Chris and Peta Mason

Inspection Fees vs Certificate Costs.

We often get asked What is the "Beetle Certificate Cost" or "What does an Electrical Compliance Certificate Cost"? We can only tell you upfront what the Inspections will cost, only once we have completed the inspections will we be in a position to inform you of the costs of any rectifications that may be required in order to make the relevant installations compliant. Should NO rectifications be required we will issue you with that compliance certificate at no further cost over and above the Inspection Fee. In the event that further rectifications are required we will issue you with a detailed report and a quote to carry out said rectifications, only upon acceptance of this quotation will we commence with the necessary rectifications after which we will issue you with the relevant Compliance Certificates, COC's.
We do offer some options below for the settlement of Inspection Fees depending on how many inspections you require and whether you will be settling immediately or on registration of the property transfer. Read More on our Terms and Conditions.

Inspection Fees are the cost of us carrying out the relevant inspections. Inspection Fees are due and payable irrespective of either the outcome of the inspection or who ultimately issues the Compliance Certificates, COC's.
