Amended regulations under the Sectional Titles Act

Aim and content

New amended regulations under the Sectional Titles Act 1986 were published in Government Gazette 34639 on 28 September 2011. These regulations will come into operation on 28 October 2011.

The aim of the seminar notes is to explain how some of these regulations give effect to the Sectional Titles Amendment Act 11 of 2010, which came into operation on 7 December 2010. The application of a number of substituted and newly inserted prescribed forms is discussed. Finally, shortcomings in both the Act and the regulations are highlighted and guidelines provided as on how to deal with these matters.

These notes are a follow-up of the highly successful seminar presented in November last year on the topic, “Deeds Registries Act and the Sectional Titles Act”, which dealt with the amendments to these two Acts.
