  • Assume you purchase a property for R400 000 and obtain the loan for the full amount – this is called a 100% bond.
  • Your monthly premium over 20 years with a 10,5% interest rate will be about R3 880.

  • Any person can apply for a mortgage loan from a variety of banks.
  • The bank will only lend you money if you are able to prove that you have sufficient income to repay the loan.
  • Payment must be made promptly every month.
  • When you apply for a mortgage loan, the bank will require a stable work record and consistent repayment records for all financial obligations.
  • The loan is “secured” against your home until it’s paid off.
  • If you can’t keep up with your repayments the bank can repossess your home and sell it to get their money back.
  • It is therefore important to buy a property you can comfortably afford and to keep up with your monthly repayments.

You will need complete these four processes before your key is handed over:

Inspection process

Before registration you will inspect your property to ensure there are NO apparent defects. If you are satisfied with the condition of your property, you will be asked to sign a letter of completion (LOC).

Bank inspection

We submit the LOC along with the structural completion certificate, electricity certificate and occupancy certificate to the bank. The bank will then do an inspection of the house.

Bank payment

If the bank is satisfied it will make final payment to the developer.

Handover and occupation

Your keys will then be handed to you and you are free to occupy the property. Once you have occupied the house, the following processes apply:

  1. Latent defects There may be deficiencies that appear in your property after you have taken occupation. These are called latent defects. The developer will fix latent defects during the first 90 days after occupation. Notify our Client Liaison Officers of any defects or call the centre on 0800 24HOUR (0800 24 4687) and an appointment will be made to access your property and attend to the problem.
  2. Letter of Good Standing.

    Our office will do a final inspection of your property accompanied by you after the latent defects period has expired. If there are no more defects you will be expected to sign a Letter of Good Standing. This means the developer has fulfilled obligations to you, the client.

Each property constructed by us is registered with the NHBRC (National Home Builder’s Regulatory Council). NHBRC is the regulatory body of the home building industry. NHBRC assists and protects consumers exposed to contractors who deliver substandard design, workmanship and poor-quality material. NHBRC registered homes offer:

  • A major structural warranty cover for up to five years from date of occupation;
  • Mediation between consumer and builder; and
  • Recourse through complaints, arbitration and remedial processes.
  • Handover and occupation
Roof

Each Calgro M3 property carries a roof structure guarantee against leaks, gutter leaks and improper discharge of water for 12 months from occupation.

Latent defects

Each Calgro M3 property enjoys a latent defects period of 90 days after occupation in which time any latent defect will be fixed at the developer’s cost.

Sundry guarantees

Any guarantee of any appliance fitted standard as per specification, will be transferred to the new owner, e.g. geysers and stoves, etc.

Maintenance

Properties demand ongoing maintenance to make them look as nice as the day they were bought. Remember to paint your house regularly, fix loose items and keep your garden nice and neat. This way it will remain beautiful and be a place where you really feel at home.
