Event 38: What you should know before buying into sectional title.

This webinar took place on Thursday 19 October 2023.

What you should know before buying into sectional title.

It is a common problem that owners of sectional title units were not informed of the costs, responsibilities, and rules before buying into a scheme. In most cases, this leaves them ill-equipped to deal with the structures involved in regulating and administrative sectional title living.

It would make life so much easier if buyers into a sectional title scheme were better educated. Often, estate agents are blamed for providing no or incorrect information to inexperienced buyers. The buyers’ subsequent illegal or inappropriate conduct becomes a problem for the trustees and owners to deal with.

Our guest this month was Tanya Sakota, named the top RE/MAX agent in Southern Africa for 2021 with nearly two decades of experience in property sales. Marina Constas talked to Tanya about the questions buyers should be asking the agent and what can be expected from estate agents.
