Steep annual increases in municipal electricity and water tariffs are a constant incentive for sectional title (ST) schemes and housing estates to implement alternative energy and water supply solutions.

Sectional Title schemes and other community housing developments should be taking steps as fast as they can now to ensure that residents have access to electricity and water supplies in the coming months.

National property management company Trafalgar has just announced the acquisition of Table View-based managing agency Browmann Property Management.

The much-anticipated Community Schemes Ombud Service (CSOS) Act is now fully operational and applicable to all community housing schemes including Sectional Title and shareblock schemes, cluster complexes and estates run by home owner associations (HOAs), retirement villages and housing co-operatives.

Block by block and street by street, Port Elizabeth’s historic Central is steadily being reclaimed and regenerated as a vibrant hub of live-work-and-play activity, housing students, young professionals, creative and professional businesses and tertiary education institutions as well as popular tourist attractions.
