Are you a potential property buyer? We perform property inspections and provide critical information on development feasibility.

Check the legal restrictions of the property before you buy.

We can furnish you with the zoning, permissible coverage, height restrictions and boundary lines of your property within 48 hours. We will also inform you if the building already exceeds the maximum permissible coverage, which may mean that a portion of your building has not been approved by council.

Archicheck a property

Why should you Archicheck? If there are any structures on the property that have not been approved, you will be liable for a penalty fee of 100% of those building costs, applied by local government. On top of this, you will need to complete the approval process which is a costly and time consuming process.

Remember that most homes in South Africa are sold voetstoots, meaning you will not be able to claim these expenses from the seller at a later stage.

Archicheck before you buy to protect your interests!

You may want to build on a bedroom or a second story down the line, but do the restrictions in your area allow for this? It is important to understand how much space (coverage) you have to work with before committing to a purchase.

We approach the local municipal council on your behalf to acquire the Zoning of your property, which dictates the rights of use on the land. Know more before you buy, renovate or develop:
