PROPERTY RISK

Electrical faults are the leading cause of fires in buildings. Most owners only become aware of the hazardous conditions after an electrical inspection has been carried out.


THE CERTIFICATE 

When you sell a property, you must provide an Electrical Certificate of Compliance (COC).

The electrical installation must be inspected and tested by a duly registered electrician. Our electricians are registered with the Electrical Contracting Board of South Africa (ECB).

The inspection and tests will cover, inter alia:

  • Distribution boards & sub-boards
  • Condition of the wiring
  • Socket outlets & light switches
  • Earthing
  • Wiring in the roof space
  • Exterior wiring

Please note: The COC does not cover fixed appliances (e.g. stoves, hot-water cylinders, air conditioners, and motors).

“All CLEAR” INSPECTION

If no faults are identified on the inspection, we will issue the COC, together with our invoice for the inspection fee.

The COC and invoice is then hand-delivered to your attorney and a copy to your estate agent.

WHEN FAULTS ARE FOUND

Where faults are identified, these will need to be rectified before the COC can be issued.

We will issue a quotation, faults report and our invoice for the inspection fee. Once the faults are rectified, we will issue the COC and submit the invoice for the repairs.
