Common property infringements in sectional title schemes

Sectional title property owners and tenants often do not know the regulations regarding uses of sections and common property.

It is up to the body corporate to ensure that any infringements are dealt with timeously, says Michael Bauer, general manager of property management company IHFM.
 
Regulation 30 (a) and (b), states clearly that the common property, sections and exclusive use areas should be used in such a way that does not interfere with others within the scheme, which is also mentioned in the STSMA in Section 13 (1)(d) and (e).

This might seem obvious, says Bauer, but there have been instances where parking bays, for example, have been taken up by additional vehicles, boats, or trailers, even though they are not rented by the person using them.

Another example is where a storeroom (or garage) has been converted into a living unit or a garage is being used to store dangerous goods.
 
30 (c) and (f) deals with the law or by-laws and the use of areas, and occupants must adhere to the stipulated provisions and use of their particular unit as marked in the sectional plan.
