Sectional title trustees

2015-10-15 06:00

SO many sectional title trustees have a weird idea that they are so important to the world, unfortunately, they do not realise they are the servants of the body corporate, not its master.

They are there to make decisions and try to help improve conditions, but probably because they have never had any type of authority before, they have their own agenda. Many of them have no idea what sectional title is all about and now that they have some authority, it goes to their head.

The sad part of it all is that they make the owners and residents feel as though they are in a prison, pouncing on them over mistakes they make instead of finding out why they are doing what they are doing.

Have rules, but have some compassion - do not make people feel like criminals, help them to have a happy life instead of living in misery. It is difficult enough having to share a space with everyone else without having to deal with being harassed.

Be fair to all and give them what is due.

Has this happened to you?
