A Property24 reader asks:
According to the Sectional Title Act, what is the required percentage (all owners) for a quorum to decide on changes to existing architectural design or to extend communal areas?
In my opinion, the trustees will require a unanimous resolution of the members of the body corporate to change the architectural theme of the scheme or to make changes to the common property.
A unanimous resolution can only be adopted at a general meeting of members if at least 80 percent of the registered members are legally present in person or by proxy and they all vote in favour of the resolution.
At least 30 days' clear notice of the meeting with full details of the causes and effects of the proposed resolution must be given.
