Klein Meer Lifestyle Security Estate
Plattekloof Cape Town
About the Estate
Kleinmeer is a Sectional Title Estate.
Sectional Title is a form of ownership where a number of people simultaneously own a piece of land on which dwellings are built, while each one of these people individually owns a section.
Sectional Title Schemes have both Management and Conduct rules that determine how the owner, his family, his staff, his visitors and tenants must or must not act.
Some people love rules and others absolutely abhor them, however they speak of order, certainty and knowing what to expect and what is expected of other residents and neighbours.
When it comes to Sectional Title, the cardinal rule is: If you do not like the rules, then do not buy or lease a unit in a scheme.
The rules are crucial, so ensure that you have studied them first and are comfortable with them.
Below follows a Sectional Title Checklist that you should ask your Estate or Rental Agent before purchasing or leasing and if they are not equipped to answer the questions, then contact any of our trustees for advice.
