about us

The National Home Builders Registration Council (NHBRC) is a regulator body of the home building industry.  Our goal is to assist and protect housing consumers who have been exposed to contractors who deliver housing units of substandard design, workmanship and poor quality material. No matter the size or value of your home building project the NHBRC is here to protect you, the housing consumer.

Established in 1998, in accordance with the provisions of The Housing Consumers Protection Measures Act (Act No. 95 of 1998) the NHBRC’s mandate is to protect the interests of housing consumers and to ensure compliance to regulated building industry standards.

As a valued customer, we urge you to ensure that your builder is registered and certified by the NHBRC. In terms of The Housing Consumers Protection Measurers Act, any person in the business of building homes is required by law to register with us. The NHBRC certifies builders who meet regulated industry criteria for technical, construction and financial capabilities.

Your home enrolment with the NHBRC insures you against poor building practises. Our quality building inspections ensure that your home is not exposed to structural failure.
