Housing Consumers Protection Bill information Sessions Dates and Venues
The Department of Human Settlements in partnership with the NHBRC is conducting information sessions across the country in order to provide various stakeholders an opportunity to provide comment on the formulation of the Housing Consumer Protection Bill.
In the past few weeks we have traversed the country and engaged with stakeholders in the Eastern Cape, KwaZulu-Natal, Limpopo and the North West.
The Housing Consumers Protection Bill intends to repeal the Housing Consumers Protection Measures Act, 1998 (Act No. 95 of 1998) by responding to challenges experienced in the home building industry since promulgation of the current Act.
The Bill further seeks to ensure adequate protection of housing consumers and effective regulation of the home building industry through, amongst others, strengthening protection measures, regulatory and enforcement mechanisms as well as prescribing appropriate sanctions or penalties against defaulting persons.
