“A rose by any other name would smell as sweet” is a popular reference to William Shakespeare’s play Romeo and Juliet.
I have had to change the name of my business because of threats of legal action. INSPECTOR HOMES is apparently too close to the name of a home inspection franchisor. He and his franchisees believe the name INSPECTOR HOMES was taking business away from them. Little do they realise that it is not a name that makes the difference but the excellent SERVICE that I provide. However, on legal advice and to avoid unnecessary and expensive litigation INSPECTOR HOMES is now no longer!
Many homeowners have installed gas appliances due to high electricity costs. However, homeowners must comply with specific regulations which relate to a gas certificate and SABS standards.
Appliances must conform to the relevant SABS standard (SANS 1539).
As from 2009, the Occupation Health and Safety Act (No 85 of 1993) requires that all gas installations must have a Gas Certificate of Conformity. This applies to all permanent installations such as gas fires, hobs, stoves and braais. After an installation has been inspected a gas certificate is issued if it is safe and leak free.
When you buy a new home have you ever thought about how long the geyser may last before you encounter problems? Probably not!
Your homeowner’s insurance may replace a burst geyser. However, be sure to check if you can claim the cost of repairs or if your home is unlivable due to water damage. Some policies allow you to claim for accommodation for the time it takes for your home to be habitable again.
Most geysers will not give you problems for ten years or more in new houses. Check with seller how old the house is if you are buying a house. Also, check if the geyser has been replaced and when.
