Defaulting Estate Agents face signage penalties

The extent to which local estate agents are supporting the City of Cape Town's campaign to curb the unsightly clutter of illegal showhouse directional signage will become clear this weekend when contractors will be out in force throughout the Metropole to test compliance with the new regulations.



In terms of the new system every estate agent and auctioneer was, from 1 July, required to register individually with the municipality for permission to display property marketing boards and directional signs for weekend show houses on Council property.

Each agent was required to pay an annual fee of R551 to register and a further R659 for six permit stickers which they are required to display on their showhouse boards throughout the year.

"Boards belonging to agents who did not meet the extended grace period for the registration deadline will be removed as will boards that do not display the required permit stickers" said Ms Debbie Evans, Development Control Officer in the Environmental Resource Management Directorate.

The fine for the removal of a non-compliant board will range from R66.00 to R528.00.
