Estate Agent focussed Workshop

Shirley Baillie and Meyer de Waal, both well-known on the sectional title environment and Government Subsidies to purchase a property will co-host a workshop focussed to provide information to practising estate agents.

Meyer will focus in how to boost and improve sales with access to Flip subsidies and Shirley on Sectional Title matters.

The workshops will be held on the following days:

• Mowbray 27/28 August
• Blouberg 1/2 September
• Somerset West – Middle September

Says Shirley

Agents selling Sectional Title need to be knowledgeable and familiar with the intricacies of the Sectional Titles Act, its Prescribed Rules, as well as the Conduct Rules of the individual Body Corporate, in order to minimise the risk of being held responsible, e.g., for creating the wrong impression by failing to correct a possible misapprehension on the part of a buyer in terms of the Consumer Protection Act (see below for the relevant clauses).

Since the CPA has been in existence for a couple of years, the public is becoming much more aware of their rights. Cases are starting to appear and lawyers are longing to make a name in this relatively new area of law. Estate Agents are “sitting ducks” for claims.

It is so easy for an Estate Agent to make a mistake if he/she is not aware of the possible pitfalls, or where to find information. As a result, deals get held up with the conveyancer or at the Deeds office frustrating the seller and buyer and doing damage to the Agent’s reputation and cash flow!

So having a sound working knowledge of the Sectional Titles Act is what is needed for Estate Agents who are serious about making a good living in this very fast growing section of property sales.
