CityPress - - Careers -

1. Down­load the form from the NHBRC web­site (nhbrc.org.za). 2. Com­plete it and in­clude your pay­ment for the reg­is­tra­tion (see the fee struc­ture on the NHBRC web­site). 3. Re­turn both to the NHBRC. 4. Con­tact your near­est cus­tomer care cen­tre. Be­fore a home­builder is reg­is­tered, the NHBRC may re­quire, as a pre­con­di­tion for reg­is­tra­tion, the sat­is­fac­tory rec­ti­fi­ca­tion of pre­vi­ous con­struc­tion-re­lated prob­lems, such as the re­scind­ing of a court judg­ment.

The NHBRC may re­quire ad­di­tional in­for­ma­tion from the home­builder or any other per­son and may con­duct an in­ves­ti­ga­tion that is con­sid­ered nec­es­sary to as­sess your ap­pli­ca­tion. Warning

It is an of­fence in terms of sec­tion 21(1) of the Hous­ing Con­sumers Pro­tec­tion Mea­sures Act for any per­son to know­ingly with­hold in­for­ma­tion or to pro­vide false or mis­lead­ing in­for­ma­tion in their ap­pli­ca­tion. Ev­ery di­rec­tor, trustee, manag­ing mem­ber or of­fi­cer of the ap­pli­cant, who know­ingly per­mits such a con­tra­ven­tion, can be fined up to R25 000 and/or be given a one-year prison sen­tence on each charge. As­sur­ance of con­fi­den­tial­ity

The NHBRC and any per­sons con­tracted by it will treat any fi­nan­cial in­for­ma­tion as con­fi­den­tial. Guar­an­tees

Where the NHBRC re­ceives an ap­pli­ca­tion from a home­builder with as­so­ciates, the NHBRC will re­quire guar­an­tees from the as­so­ciates.

This re­quire­ment is cov­ered by sec­tion 10(5) of the act. Is­su­ing of reg­is­tra­tion cer­tifi­cate

The NHBRC will is­sue a reg­is­tra­tion cer­tifi­cate to a home­builder where it has re­ceived: Writ­ten ac­cep­tance of any con­di­tions; Any sureties, in­dem­ni­ties or guar­an­tees re­quested, signed and com­pleted; and

Pay­ment of the reg­is­tra­tion fee. Pe­riod of va­lid­ity

The reg­is­tra­tion of a home­builder re­mains valid for one year and is not trans­fer­able. Only the reg­is­tered home­builder may use the cer­tifi­cate and reg­is­tra­tion num­ber. No other com­pany, per­son or other en­tity may use it to en­rol homes or for any other pur­pose. Re­newal of reg­is­tra­tion

Ev­ery home­builder will ap­ply an­nu­ally for the re­newal of his or her reg­is­tra­tion with the NHBRC. This must be done be­fore the cur­rent re­newal date of the reg­is­tra­tion.
