INVITATION TO PUBLIC HEARINGS AND CALL FOR PUBLIC COMMENTS-Sectional Titles Amendment Bill
The Portfolio Committee on Agriculture, Rural Development, Land and Environmental
Affairs in the Mpumalanga Provincial Legislature invites stakeholders, interested
persons and organisations to make submissions on the Sectional Titles Amendment
Bill [B 31B-2020].
The purpose of the Sectional Titles Amendment Bill [B31B – 2020] 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 mortgages in respect
of leases of common property.
