The NHBRC warns unsuspecting housing consumers against a letter allegedly sent out by Cosmopolitan Projects about guarantees on their completed homes.

South Africa's construction industry is not out of the woods yet, despite data pointing to an upward trend.

SAPOA has welcomed the appointment of the new Chief Executive Office for the NHBRC from 1 March 2013, Mr Mongezi Mnyani.

There are sometimes cases where a new home is built, things go wrong with the structure and on trying to get the NHBRC to compensate for the damage or repair, the owners think that there is no recourse if the NHBRC refuses to pay, said Lanice Steward, managing director of Knight Frank Anne Porter. 

Unscrupulous property developers are ripping off home buyers by walking away from uncompleted complexes when the money runs out, leaving the owners to pick up the tab for finishing the work.

Developers call for housing body.

Leading property developers say it is time for the National Home Builders' Registration Council (NHBRC) to be fully reassessed. Clients are suffering, they say, because of the 1,3% levy the council charges on all homes built, irrespective of their value.
