    Exclamation Where to get property plans?

    As some know, I bought a house in West Beach..

    Now - where can I get a copy of the building plans? The current owners are in Dubai, and aren't coming back.

    I have a copy of their ID's and letter giving me permission - but have no idea where I actually get the plans?!

    The planning office are now in Plumstead just next to the Checkers Hyper. (parking lot)
    You have to fill in a form stating erf and reason and they will call you in about a week or two.

    You can view the plan, but you can not get a copy. Take a camera.

    Hopefully they won't have lost the plan in the mean time as they did to me, TWICE. The system there is hopeless, with bits of paper (plan pieces) on the floor and scattered over desks, things stored in shoeboxes and people making alterations with pen on existing approved plans etc.. ... chaos.

    Thanks - Why can't you get a copy? won't an architect need a copy to make changes?

    yip - in April/May - I eventually had to request the assistance of the City Ombudsman... as the counsil claimed to have had a storage problem and packed them in in unmarked boxes, and were unable to find them.

    I'm in the process of buying a property, and according to the owner the plans have been lost by the council when they moved offices. Might have to take the same route as you.

    Thanks
