Electrical Compliance Certificates Cape Town
Electrical Compliance Certificate procedure in Cape Town explained.
It is a requirement in Cape Town, South Africa that owners of properties that contain an Electrical Installation be in possession of a Valid Electrical Certificate of Compliance confirming that the Electrical Installation has been inspected by a Qualified, Registered, Electrician and has been found to, or made to, comply with the SANS10142-1 Electrical Installation Regulations and is deemed Safe.
Modern life without electricity would be impossible, but it must be remembered that electricity, if not respected and treated with the proper care, can be dangerous and has the potential to cause harm to people and damage to property.
When selling your home it is generally the Sellers responsibility to provide the Purchaser with a “Safe Electrical Installation” this is verified by having your Electrical Installation inspected by a qualified Electrician for non compliance issues.
Should your Electrical Installation be compliant the Electrician will issue you with a new Electrical Certificate of Compliance, in the event that your Electrical Installation is not compliant the Electrician will issue you with a report of the electrical compliance issues and a quote to rectify these issues.
On acceptance of the quotation the Electrician will make the necessary electrical rectifications and then issue you with a new Electrical Certificate of Compliance, COC.
For your convenience we normally supply the new Electrical Certificate directly to your Transferring Attorney for Registration purposes and to be passed onto the new property owner, you are more than welcome to request a copy of the Electrical Compliance Certificate for your own records.
