Why do I have to submit building plans for approval?
The National Building Regulations and Building Standards Act (no 103 of 1977) stipulates that no person may erect, alter, add to, or convert any building without the prior approval of the Local Authority.
Illegal structures also jeopardize the property valuation and delay the sale.
