Event 37: Maintenance in sectional title schemes.

This webinar took place on Thursday 21 September 2023.

Maintenance in sectional title schemes.


Do you have concerns that the maintenance in your scheme is problematic, notwithstanding the presence of a 10-year maintenance, repair and replacement plan?

There are three possible major defects to be found in every sectional title scheme: Roof problems, cracks and the most common defect, damp. It is important for buyers to know exactly what issues around these defects may exist and for trustees it is critical to understand what maintenance work needs to be carried out.

Maintenance and inspections are key contributors to the optimum functioning of schemes and the preservation of owners’ property investments. However, these issues are often not prioritised due to the cost and time required and a lack of knowledge as to the necessary processes.

For this webinar, we hosted Marisia Robus, the first woman building inspector to hold a position on the National Association of Building Inspectors of SA (NABOSA) Board, a qualified ITC roof inspector, and the CEO of Gauteng Property Inspections.

Together we unpacked what you need to know about maintenance inspections, snag lists, construction errors, and due diligence reports for residential developments.
