Braai area increased levy

By Mariska Basson on Mon, 14 May 2018 at 15:28

Hi all

We added a zinc roof at the back of our unit at the braai area, it is an open space for exclusive use. It was drawn up and registered at the deeds office. I received a letter from our managing property agent that they received new PQ papers, our floor area increased from 127 to 171 square meters. We owe them R15000 (back-dated until registration occurred which were April 2015), and our levies increased with R500 per month. How can this be legal? The papers says that the occupancy rate also increased, but no-one can live there as it is open. It is basically just a "afdak". Do we have any rights in this regard?

Thank you

I would recommend that you obtain legal advice.
