Welcome to S.Baillie & Associates
S Baillie and Associates welcomes all those working with Sectional Title, or invested in it, to our website.
Whether you are selling, investing in, working with, or living in ST, it makes life easier to know at least the basics of how it works.
My aim is to empower you through knowledge in the easiest possible way.
In 2009 S Baillie and Associates developed the fully integrated index for the Sectional Title Act of 1986.
With the changes in sectional title legislation effective 7 October 2016, I compiled and published the manual Keyword Access to the Sectional Title Legislation. It comprises all the legislation plus an index of 39 pages of keywords/topics/ aspects which allows you to look up any aspect, quickly and easily. All you need to know is English, and the alphabet. This index covers all the current legislation which is
- Community Schemes Ombud Services Act 9 of 2011 and Regulations
- Sectional Titles Schemes Management Act 8 of 2011 and Regulations and prescribed Management and Conduct Rules
- Sectional Titles Act 95 of 1986 as amended
Next to each keyword is the page number, the Act/Rule/Regulation where the answer is to be found, and the relevant clause number/s. If an aspect/topic is in more than one place, ( which is often) the index will send you to each and every one.
Our customers are diverse, ranging from owners and trustees, to managing agents, estate agents, attorneys, insurance brokers and assessors, to architects, and all those affiliated with sectional title as suppliers or service providers.
As training is the key to empowerment, I also offer that – please see the training section
This manual is a MUST for all people involved in Sectional Title, as it is a quick and easy way to find whatever aspect you need to know and saves you the time of reading through 130+ pages.
