Do you need a CoC certificate for your property sale? Are you worried about the integrity of your house’s wiring? Then getting a CoC certificate from a GP Electricians partner is a must.

Any property with an electrical system must have a current CoC certificate in order to be sold. Until a CoC certificate is presented, the property transfer will not be finalised. Depending on the location and size of the property, a CoC certificate can cost from R850. However, this does not include any necessary changes or repairs if the property is not in compliance. A certified electrician will ensure:

  • that no fire hazard or risk of electrocution results from electrical installation.
  • that both the earthing and bonding of the property are done correctly.
  • that the property’s circuits are all functionally sound.
  • the laws of South Africa are followed in all electrical work.
