  1. I’m not sure Peter, but I would imagine if you can prove your inheritance it should be necessary.

  2. I inherited my parent’s house.. will I be able to have a carport erected before having the property transfered to.
    I’m living in Cape Town.

  3. You would need to contact the City of Cape Town for this information.

    Hello, I am very interested to hear about Building Plans in Cape Town being submitted on Memory sticks. I suppose it has to be in a PDF format. What is the turnover time for approval of a house plan, and what do you charge per meter for Scutiny?

    Here in JHB they charge R17.00/Sq.M. and take 6 weeks for a plan

    Pretoria Charge R7.00.

    Jhb also sometimes insist on copies of the approved plans for an existing building when you submit alteration plans.

  5. Any change to the roof eg. pitch, height, length and type of covering will all need plans. The only thing that you can do is replace existing covering with the same material as maintenance work.

  6. Hi Felix, You do not say what part of the country you are in. In Cape Town they do say this on their website and I quote here:
    How long does a building plan take to be approved?
    In terms of the National Building Regulations and Building Standard Act, the City has 30 days to approve or refuse a building plan application for buildings smaller than 500m2 and 60 days for buildings larger than 500m2.

    The link to the page is: https://www.capetown.gov.za/en/planningandbuilding/Functions/Pages/BuildingDevelopment.aspx
    I am not sure about the rest of SA but I hope this helps.

    Building plan approval Timeline


    Thank you for a very informative site.
    Could you kindly help me by telling me whether it is published anywhere that council must either approve or reject your building application within 30 days for buildings smaller than 500sqm and 60 days for buildings larger than 500sqm?
    Thank you kindly.

  8. Hi what are the regulations on raising a pitch on a flat roof. Do i need to submit new plans or is that considered minor building work.

  9. Thanks Hennie, I have corrected the post and added to it.
