The Standing Committee on Agriculture, Environmental Affairs and Development Planning of the Western Cape Provincial Parliament invites stakeholders, interested persons and organisations to make submissions on the Sectional Titles Amendment Bill [B 31B–2020] (NCOP).
The purpose of the Sectional Titles Amendment Bill is to amend the Sectional Titles Act, 1986 (Act 95 of 1986), with the objective of improving the registration and surveying related matters in deeds registries and the offices of the Surveyors-General. The amendments contained in the Bill aim to benefit sectional title developers, owners of sectional title units, as well as financial institutions, by, among other things, strengthening the rights of lessees in development schemes; by clarifying the rights of developers in respect of the subdivision, consolidation and extension of units in sectional title schemes; and by providing for the consent of mortgagees in respect of leases of common property.
Those interested in engaging the committee may submit written submissions or make oral submissions by sending voice notes on WhatsApp (cellphone number: 082 877 7477), and may also request to appear before the committee to make oral presentations.
All submissions and requests to appear before the standing committee must reach the standing committee by no later than Monday, 4 July 2022.
Submissions, enquiries and requests should be directed to Ms Shareen Niekerk (tel: 021 487 1992 or email: email@example.com).
