Q

Hi, I have two questions:

1 Can outstanding levies be collected via garnishee order?

2 Is it the body corporate’s responsibility to collect the arrear levies at its own cost? – Aloma

A

Hi Aloma, yes outstanding levies can be collected via a garnishee order and the body corporate has to collect arrear levies at its own costs but will recover money spent from the owner.

    Hi. The information from 17 October in respect of the possibility to collect arrear levies by Garnishee Order in a sectional title scheme refers. Can this procedure also be applied in Home Ownership Associations. Thank you
