Why the RCC?

When we act as a collective industry, we have much more chance of success.

SUCCESS
During recent times, our industry has intervened in matters where the implications of these going wrong would have had a negative impact on all members of the industry. The success in these matters would not have been possible unless we stood together as an industry specifically in the collective funding of these. It is unfortunate however that only a small percentage of estates were prepared to contribute, even though the benefits of these matters positively impacted on all estates in the Residential Community Industry.

This was evident in the recent SCA judgment between an owner and Mount Edgecombe Estate 2 where we were granted amicus by the courts. Regrettably less than 20 estates contributed to the costs of this and yet this judgment, that was based largely on the evidence presented by amicus, benefited every estate around the country.

STANDING TOGETHER
Two other important matters that were successful based on us standing together was the clearance certificate matter, where, with NAMA, we were amicus in the High Court, and the Income tax practice note from SARS in the matter of charging tax on building penalties, rather than regarding this as the same as normal levies. For copies of these judgments, please e mail info@rccouncil.co.za.

An important reason for the establishment of the Residential Communities Council (RCC) is to facilitate, as an Industry body, the intervention in legal matters as well as influencing legislation affecting the Industry.

The Property Practitioners Act (PPA)
The RCC has obtained an opinion on how the PPA may affect the Residential Community Industry and the HOA. Please e mail us on info@rccouncil.co.za to access a copy of this opinion.

The Protection of Personal Information Act (POPI)

The RCC has, together with IACT-Africa negotiated a self help online toolkit for POPI implementation on your estate. Please join our zoom meeting on 7 April at 09h00 to discuss how this toolkit will help you.
