Who we are

SACHI help South African Property Buyers avoid the painful lesson of hind sight; whether buying, building or investing, for Peace of Mind, Financial Protection and delivering a Valuable Negotiating Tool, obtaining a Property Inspection Report from an unbiased 3rd party is a must for anyone wishing to make an intelligent decision based on all the facts. At South African Association of Home Inspectors, “we inspect what you expect”. Our growing national network provide an informed consultation with regards to the vital signs of a property, ahead of what must be seen as inevitable changes in the consumer protection act.

We are good at


Consumer Protection Act

Purchasing a home is an emotional process, in our enthusiasm, lack of knowledge or misplaced trust we find ourselves spending more money than expected on unjustified costly repairs or wasting time and energy on drawn out litigation. Estate agents, developers, landlords or builders will no longer be able to take refuge behind signed legal papers and the “Verstoots clause”.

Estate agents can be held liable for any action which on later investigation could be characterised as dishonest, unfair or misleading in respect to the promotion and sale of a property.

The seller and agent may not withhold any aspects of the property which could be deemed of low or defective quality and/or of questionable value in terms of the price paid.

Any Contracts or documentation which could be deemed difficult to understand or insufficiently explanatory can be determined as void in respect to the sale agreement.

If any latent defects become apparent in the home within six months of its being transferred to the new owner, the seller will, in terms of the new Act, have to remedy them or pay compensation.

What we do

We Consult

Irrespective of the Clients motivation, buying, investing or selling a property, we need to understand the job the report is hired to do whilst maintaining a single point of contact and accountability throughout the project.

We Inspect

A Property Inspection is a Detailed and Systematic Visual Inspection of the Property, its Structures, Design and Fixtures. that will provide a Transparent Understanding of the Property's 'Vital Signs'.

We Report

Using Apex software we provide a simple but detailed SACHI report that will provide a Transparent Understanding of the Property's 'Vital Signs' on date of inspection.
