Article: Building a Boundary Wall by Author: Jan Lombaard: 1. Municipal approved plans are needed to build any permanent structure on a property.
2. Boundary walls must be build as per the design rules in the National Building Regulations and a copy of this can be obtained from any registered architect to inform you about these design rules.
3. Determine the exact location of the boundary between properties as no walls or foundations may be build over the boundary line. If you are uncertain about your property boundary, you should ask a registered land surveyor to re-determine the boundary.
4. Should your neighbor partake in the design, the cost and construction of the wall, the foundation and wall may be built on the centre of the boundary line. In the absence of proof that a boundary wall, fence or hedge is entirely on one of two adjoining properties, it is presumed to be half on one property and half on the other.
5. No existing boundary wall or fence may be removed without the prior permission in writing from your neighbor.
6. Any demarcation system is a common boundary between the two parties and therefore the other party has the right to object.
7. The Slope of the ground as the natural flow of water may not be restricted
8. The types of soil on the property to ensure proper foundations are put in place.
