Viewed in the light of basic legal principle, the Sectional Titles Act has introduced three radical innovations into the South African law of property. If we are to grasp the nature and scope of these innovations fully, it is essential to examine them against the background of our common law concepts (a) of ownership; (b) of co-ownership; and (c) of land as the object of such ownership.
