The Association of Law Societies Continuing Legal Education (CLE) department again experienced a successful year in 1996, with attendance figures similar to those of 1995 - itself an exceptionally good year as far as CLE was concerned. The performance is even more gratifying if one takes into account that at least two seminars fewer than in 1995 were presented in most of the provinces.
Section 24 of the Sectional Titles Act 95 of 1986 provides the machinery in terms of which a sectional owner can effect an extension of the limits of a section in a sectional title complex. The extension can either be effected horizontally (for example by the addition of a balcony) or vertically, by the addition of another section on top of the existing one. Since the vertical or horizontal extension of a section will normally affect the participation quotas of other sectional owners and possibly alter the outside appearance of the common property, a unanimous resolution authorising the body corporate to effect such an extension must be obtained (see s 24(1).
