Electrical Inspection

Why do I need an Electrical Certificate of Compliance?

An Electrical Certificate of Compliance is required by law when transferring ownership of a property and to ensure that the electrical installation is safe as per Code of Practice SANS 10142.

This Certificate of Compliance (COC) is issued by one of our accredited inspectors once the prescribed inspection and tests on the installation wiring have been done and deemed safe.

Tips before an inspection.

  • On the day of the inspection ensure that all light fittings/globes are working.
  • Make sure all the circuits on all distribution boards are labelled correctly.
  • Make sure all isolators are accessible from fixed equipment.
  • Remove all redundant leads.
  • Check that the light fittings have their covers in place (e.g. ball lights).
  • Allow all distribution doards to be accessed during the day of inspection.

Wood Borer Beetle Inspection

Who needs certification?

Most banks and insurance companies require a Beetle Clearance Certificate when a property is transferred to new ownership. This Clearance Certificate is issued once the property is inspected for any visible signs of wood destroying insects and deemed to be free of any such insects.

What to do before an inspection.

  • On the day of inspection remove all loose timber from the property.
  • Indicate if the Wendy house / wooden shed (if any) is included in the deed of sale.

Common types of beetles.

  • The Furniture Beetle (Anobium Punctatum)
    • Attack hardwood and softwood timber usually older than 20 years.

    Italian Beetle or European Woodborer (Hylotrupes Bajulus)

    • Attack softwood timbers like pine.

Plumbing / Water Inspection

Tap_

Who needs certification?

Some City Bylaws may require you to obtain a Water COC. The aim of the Water COC is to ensure that no person may negligently, purposefully or wastefully permit fittings to leak, or use fittings that are defective.

Tips on what to look for before an inspection.

  • On the day of the inspection ensure that all fittings are water tight and not leaking when closed.
  • Ensure that the water meter is accessible and visible, clear all earth and vegetation obstructing the water meter.
  • Ensure that the consumer stop tap is accessible and visible, clear all earth and vegetation obstructing the consumer stop tap.
  • Check all rainwater down pipes’ discharge to the environment.
  • Ensure that the toilet stop taps are working and not seized.
  • Check that all the toilets’ flushing mechanisms are working.
  • Make sure that all drain covers are in place and not damaged allowing rainwater into the drain.

Gas Inspections

Who needs this safety inspection?

All houses with gas stoves or piping require a gas safety inspection.

This inspection is done using gas leakage detection equipment. If the gas installation passes the test and is deemed safe by the inspector, a safety certificate will be issued.

Tips before an inspection.

  • On the day of the inspection  ensure that the area surrounding the LP gas bottle is clean and cleared of any combustibles.
  • Ensure the shut-off valve is accessible.
  • Provide the equipment serial number to the inspector, if available.

Electrical Fence Inspection

Electric_

Why do I need an Electrical Fence Inspection?

A new regulation published in the Government Gazette state that all electrical energized security fences need to comply with safety regulations SANS 10222-3:2011.

Tips before an inspection.

  • On the day of the inspection ensure that all vegetation is cleared away from the electrical fence.
  • Ensure that all safety sign boards are installed above gates and not more that 10m apart on the fence.

Inspection (Deed of Sale)

The aim of a compliance inspection (electrical, beetle, plumbing, gas or electrical fencing) is to provide the buyer of a property with compliance certificates. By law it is the responsibility of the seller of a property to provide these certificates before a deed of sale can be completed between a buyer and seller of a property.

A company that provide these certificates must be registered with the relevant boards in order to issue such certificates. The seller that instructs such a company to carry out these inspections, must take care to ensure that the company has liability insurance should something go wrong, otherwise the seller may still be responsible once the buyers have moved in.

Excellent Professional Service

Just a quick thank you to Jean and his team for outstanding services rendered, it is very rare to still find honest people with integrity in this line of business. The previous inspector quoted R18 500 for electrical repairs on my property. Cilltec was referred to me by a friend, they quickly located the exact same faults the previous company found as well as additional issues. The best part is their quote came down to R12 350.

I highly recommend this business!
