When buying into a sectional title development, you’ll receive a large amount of building documentation on registration of the apartment into your name.   Some of the documentation is more important than others and may create a delay down the line when you are wanting to either sell or bond your apartment, should you need to provide certain of the documentation.

We would suggest that you create a folder for your Apartment and file all of the building documentation for your future reference and use.  Here is a list of the building documentation –




  1.       Gas Certificate


  1. Fencing Compliance Certificate


  1. NHBRC Registration Certificate


  1. NHBRC Enrolment Certificate (Original Certificate is required. This is one of the most important certificates to keep for the next 5 years)


  1. Copy of Approved Sectional Title Plans


  1. “Happy Letter” –


  1. Any other Certificates or Warranties available such as Waterproofing, Drainage, Roofing, Fireproofing, Glazing etc which may be issued.


  1. Copy of the list of Exclusive Use Areas, if in terms of the Rules, which are allocated to specific units, together with a Parking Layout Plan & Correlation Sheet, to prove which is your parking bay as you will not receive a separate title.


  1. Sectional Insurance Certificate for your Unit and Exclusive Use Area if being bonded


  1. Copy of your Agreement of Sale, together with all the Annexures for capital gains purposes, if appliable.
