Sectional title corner – Which expenses are based on participation quota?
When it comes to sectional title schemes and participation quota, should each unit’s levy be determined based on the whole cost of the budget with participation quota or should only the maintenance costs be based on participation quota? – Kashvir
Hi Kashvir, all expenses are based on participation quota. The only items that might be exempt and billed directly to the owner will be a separate, approved levy for a certain service like a telephone line or sanitation. The City of Johannesburg, for example, has a specific rate for each unit and units can subsidise each other’s costs.
