CITY OF CAPE TOWN IN FULL SWING WITH WATER CERTIFICATES

Water by Law certificates are no longer new to those who own property within the City of Cape Town municipal boundaries. One question that has remained without answer for some time though, is who do purchasers go to, if they feel that the seller’s plumber did not do a proper inspection and that the certificate is invalid?

The City has answered: If any purchaser is not happy and feels that the certificate does not comply, and should the seller or the plumber not respond favourably, then he/she may send an email to certificateofcomplaince@capetown.gov.za and copy Basil van Rooy on basil.vanrooy@capetown.gov.za, who is a Senior Water Inspector. A copy of the Schedule that was issued, must accompany the report. The City is now also conducting its own inspections upon receipt of Certificates from transferring attorneys, to check up on the work that was conducted.

We trust this will be of assistance.
