Julia Motapola says the state owned entity’s mandates are to protect housing consumers and regulate the home building industry.

(SABC) State owned entity, National Home Builders Registration Council (NHBRC) has fined a developer a total of R1.6 million.

This comes after the project owner failed to adequately build 160 residential units in Pretoria. NHBRC Legal Enforcement & Compliance Executive Manager, Julia Motapola, says the perpetrator was made aware of their non-compliance to the legislation last year.

“The notice of noncompliance was issued some time last year and they sort of delayed in complying or responding to the NHBRC’s call to comply because each builder is given an opportunity to respond before we take them through the disciplinary hearing.” Motapola says the NHBRC has issued this fine as its key housing mandates are to protect housing consumers and regulate the home building industry.

NHBRC is an agency of the Department of Human Settlements
