In 1999, eThekwini municipality allocated two account numbers to the Croftdene Mall (the applicant) and a company by the name of Croftas Holdings (Pty) Ltd, which underwent liquidation the same year. During the period of liquidation, some of the units in the mall were sold out under sectional titles. It later became unclear as to who was liable - between the liquidators, the applicant and the municipality - for electricity and water user charges, interests and penalties, some of which dated as far back as 31 January 1997. However, in October 2006, the municipality had already consolidated the two accounts.
