oa Comparative and International Law Journal of Southern Africa - The Sectional Titles Act in the light of the Uniform Condominium Act

Volume 20, Issue 1
  • ISSN : 0010-4051



In November 1984 a draft bill for a new Sectional Titles Act was published proposing a great variety of amendments to the present Sectional Titles Act. An improved version of this draft bill was introduced in the South African parliament during the first half of 1986 as the Sectional Titles Bill and this was further amended as a result of the deliberations of the standing committee on Communications and Public Works. This final bill was promulgated on 17 September 1986 as the new Sectional Titles Act 95 of 1986. The aim of this article is to evaluate this "second generation" Sectional Titles Act in the light of the Uniform Condominium Act. No attempt is made to analyse each and every provision of the two statutes. Only a broad overview is given and dissimilarities highlighted in order to suggest possible improvements.
