Reporting requirements 

There are two different sets of requirements, those for developers and those for Municipalities.


In addition to the UDZ3 certificate, any developer that erects, extends, adds to or improves a building within an UDZ of which the estimated cost of the erection, extension, addition or improvement is likely to exceed R5 million must –
  • inform the Commissioner within 30 days after the commencement of that erection, addition or improvement of the estimated costs of the erection, extension, addition or improvements to the building or part(s) of the building which the developer intends to sell and the estimated selling price of the building or those parts; and
  • inform the Commissioner within 30 days after the sale of the building or all anticipated sales of any parts of the building have been concluded of the actual costs incurred on that building or parts of that building and the actual selling price of that building or parts of the building.
