Chief Registrar's Circulars 8 and 10/2005

Chief Registrar's Circular's Nos. 8 to 10 of 2005 were recently issued. It is the last two which are of most interest to the conveyancer. Before turning to them, I would like to note that CRC 8 only concerns the name change of Standard General Insurance Company Limited to Nova Life Limited and Nova Life Partners Limited.

Chief Registrar's Circular No. 9 of 2005
This circular provides for the commencement of the amended regulations to the Sectional Titles Act 95 1986 as published in Government Gazette No. 27561. The nature and/or impact of the amendments are briefly as follows:

  • The heading of Regulation 17 has been changed to "Alienation and letting of common property".
  • Regulation 27 now prescribes the documents necessary for an application for the registration of a plan of extension of the common property.
  • Regulation 28 has two added subregulations: Subregulation (4) prescribes the procedures which must be followed in ceding exclusive use areas to a beneficiary yet which remain registered in the name of a person who has ceased to be a member of the body corporate. Subregulation (5) of Regulation 28 prescribes what procedures must be followed in obtaining a separate title deed for an individual exclusive use area in cases where exclusive use areas are held by means of one title deed.
  • A number of forms - Forms AG to AI - have also been inserted, as a consequence of the amendment to Regulation 28, while Forms G, H and O have been amended for other reasons.
