The Act

The Housing Consumers Protection Measures Act, 1998 ( Act No 95 of 1998 ) makes provision for the protection of housing consumers. This act provides for the establishment of the National Home Builders Registration Council ( NHBRC ) which needs to apply the “Act” through required regulations and procedures as stated in the Government Gazette 1 December 1999 and Home Building Manuals Parts 1,2 & 3 February 1999. The NHBRC needs to warrant any residential dwelling against poor workmanship resulting into structural defects and thus safety issues.

The following types of dwellings are covered by “the Act”.

  • Employee/Corporate Housing
  • Houses
  • Town houses
  • Rented Homes
  • Maisonnettes
  • Flats
  • Additions and alterations are not covered by “the Act. Owner Builders must apply through the NHBRC for exemption.

Important Information

NHBRC requires you to pass a test before granting your NHBRC Registration Number. A representative of your Company (your Technical Manager) will need to do this test. It is an open book test, and we will assist with examples of possible test questions.

Only 2 attempts are allowed per Company to pass the test. The test needs to be passed within 2 weeks from the date you paid the NHBRC’s Registration fee Invoice (we will advise). If the Test is not passed within 2 attempts, then the Registration will be cancelled.

The test takes place Mondays to Fridays, 10am or 2 pm at the NHBRC branch where we will submit your application (your nearest NHBRC branch).
