Sectional Title


In South Africa, sectional title refers to a form of property ownership where individuals own a unit within a multi-unit complex or development, along with shared ownership of common areas and facilities. Here's a simple explanation of how sectional title works:

Ownership Structure: In sectional title ownership, each unit owner holds title to their individual unit (such as an apartment, townhouse, or office space) within a larger development. They also share joint ownership of common property areas, such as lobbies, stairwells, gardens, parking areas, and amenities like swimming pools or gyms.

Body Corporate: The sectional title scheme is managed by a body corporate, which comprises all the unit owners in the development. The body corporate is responsible for managing and maintaining the common property, collecting levies from owners to cover operational costs and repairs, and ensuring compliance with sectional title regulations.

Management Rules: Each sectional title scheme is governed by a set of rules known as the management and conduct rules. These rules outline the rights, obligations, and conduct expected of unit owners and occupants within the scheme. They cover aspects such as noise levels, use of common areas, pet policies, and architectural guidelines.

Levies and Contributions: Unit owners are required to pay monthly levies or contributions to the body corporate. These levies fund the maintenance, repairs, insurance, and administration of the common property. The amount of levies is determined based on the size and value of each unit.

Meetings and Decision-Making: The body corporate holds regular meetings where decisions affecting the scheme are made democratically by the unit owners. Major decisions may include approving budgets, appointing managing agents, and resolving disputes.

Title Deed and Sectional Plan: Each sectional title unit is registered with its own title deed, which specifies the boundaries and dimensions of the unit. The sectional plan depicts the layout of the entire development, showing the individual units and common areas.

Sectional title ownership offers a convenient and communal living arrangement, particularly in urban areas, where residents benefit from shared amenities and collective management of the property. However, it also requires adherence to rules and active participation in the management of the scheme through the body corporate. Consulting with a property professional or attorney can provide detailed guidance on the rights and responsibilities associated with sectional title ownership.
