WHAT DOES A “SPLUMA” CERTIFICATE TYPICALLY CERTIFY?
Depending on the type of certificate, a “SPLUMA” certificate is typically issued upon consideration of the following aspects by a municipality:
That all the requirements and conditions of approval associated with a land development application have been met – for example the payment of development charges and/or engineering services contributions and/or infrastructure upgrades.
That the use of the property is in accordance with the municipality’s land use / zoning scheme.
That approved buildings plans that accord with and reflect the as-built status of the property are in place for all buildings (including swimming pool and lapa).
That no encroachment of building lines/ building restriction areas or property boundaries are applicable.
That all development charges and/or engineering services contributions due are paid up.
That all rates and taxes due are paid up to date.
