It will equip them with advanced para-legal skills in the management of schemes and assist them to be highly competitive in the property management industry. The course is compiled and presented by sectional title specialists Prof. Graham Paddock and Judith van der Walt.

Previously disadvantaged scholarships UCT and Paddocks are offering 5 scholarships for previously disadvantaged individuals (PDI's) to this distance learning course on sales in sectional title property.

Back to basics with Judith van der Walt The powers and the misconceptions surrounding trustees and what they can do are analysed.

Q & A with the Professor - Professor Graham Paddock replies to two problems. In the first, he deals with the ability of a developer/chairman to exercise the rights of purchases under sale agreements when voting on a new conduct rule. In the other, he addresses the problem of an owner who has appropriated part of the common property next to his section by erecting a concrete panel wall on the scheme boundary.
