Affordable Home Solutions: The Occupation Certificate Requirements for Your New Building
Your affordable home agency can save you a lot of time and money when dealing with the construction bye laws of the country. It is important to realise that construction is subject to various rules and regulations, or more aptly referred to as bye-laws, which is monitored by the council building inspectors. The purpose of this process is to ensure that standards are met, so that the building will not collapse and to ensure a healthy living environment for the occupants.
The occupation certificate is primarily required to safeguard the owner and to stipulate that all requirements of the byelaws have been met. It allows the occupants to legally “Occupy” the new home.
What are the consequences of not acquiring an occupation certificate?
It is illegal to sell or purchase a property without an occupation certificate, as well as a full set of approved plans/planning permission from the city council.
Any buildings without this certificate will not qualify for insurance cover.
Property owners can face hefty fines for each day their property remains without the required certificate.
In many instances, property owners set out to apply for and acquire their occupation certificates themselves, but when opting an affordable home from Budget Builds, we will facilitate the process for you.
