It is one of our many company services to provide Electrical Compliance Certificates (ECOC) in Durban that ensures your electrical installation meets all South African standards, thereby proving your property’s electrical installation is safe. If damages occur at your property due to an electrical fault, your insurance company will require a valid electrical certificate. If you do not possess an ECOC, insurance companies can very deny your claim.
Due to recent changes in South African law, Durban property buyers should have a new certificate made. It is considered a good rule of thumb to have your property inspected every year two years whether or not you intend to sell or rent it out. Therefore you can feel confident your electrical installation is safe for the period of ownership of the property. If you intend to rent out the property, is necessary to have a valid Landlord Certificate and copy of this should be given to the tenant.
If you are looking to rent a property, you should only do so if the landlord has provided you with a valid compliance certificate. Real estate agents must also view the certificate before they can help find a tenant.
