Sectional title property refers to a type of real estate divided into several units that are separately owned.

It has never been more popular.

The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed Themba Mthethwa, Chief Ombudsman at Community Scheme Ombud Service, and Marina Constas, Specialist Sectional Title Attorney and Director at BBM Attorneys, for his weekly "The Science Of" feature.

One of our mandates is to train the Body Corporate and the trustees.
