Making and amending rules - Anton Kelly
A quick guide to what you need to know
Managing a sectional title scheme and, to a large extent, living in a scheme are activities regulated by the provisions of the Sectional Titles Act and two sets of rules – the prescribed management rules and the prescribed conduct rules.
In this article, Anton looks at the original intention of the Act, the developer’s rights with regard to rules, and how rules can be amended or created.
Absentee owners and tenants - Sayed Iqbal Mohamed
Their impact on bodies corporate
Certain types of absentee owners are the reason some bodies corporate are failing. More specifically, they bring into the scheme a category of tenants who contribute to the rapid deterioration of the entire delicate fabric of the sectional titles scheme.
In this article, Sayed Iqbal outlines his views of the different “types” of owners and their impact on bodies corporate, and a possible solution to the problems.
