THE NHBRC TECHNICAL ASSESSMENT TEST
How difficult is this nhbrc technical assessment test?
I wouldn’t say that the test is easy as it requires someone with an intimate knowledge of the National Home Builders Registration Council’s specific home building rules & regulations.

- Major structural defects for a period of 5 years.

nhbrc project enrolment
A home builder can only apply for a home enrollment only once they have received a valid Nhbrc Certificate .
Builders are required to apply and enroll their homes at least 15 days prior to the commencement of the home building project.
Another very useful tip is to dig the strip foundation trench before enrolling and inspections commence by the NHBRC. However, do not commence further before enrollment.
For more information about the home enrollment process, please click here.
How long does it take to get the Nhbrc certificate?
It takes about 7 to 14 working days dependent on how ready you are with your application documents.
Is it compulsory to register with the nhbrc?
Yes it is. In fact, in terms of the housing consumer’s protection measures act 95 of 1998, no one can commence building nor receive payment for a home building project without a valid NHBRC registration certificate.
The only exemption to the rule is for the home owner who is building a home for his or her own habitat.
In other words, no home building project may commence without a proper valid NHBRC registration certificate.
