IEASA Western Cape’s last property updates for 2015

03 Dec 2015

The Institute of Estate Agents of South Africa, Western Cape, will hold the last two property update sessions for this year on 10 December at their Pinelands Training Centre in Sheldon Way, Pinelands.

Evans says this workshop will provide details of the practical steps to becoming POPI compliant, opportunities and benefits of POPI, elements to consider in achieving compliance, and frequently asked questions.

This is according to Annette Evans, regional manager for the Institute of Estate Agents, Western Cape, who says the morning session will be run from 09:30 to 11:30 by an attorney from the Cape Law Society.

She says it will include a legal update case study regarding the voetstoots clause within an offer to purchase, as well as the legal requirements with regards to the Protection of Personal Information Act (POPI).

The aim of this Act is to allow members of the public to know who they are dealing with in a business and, according to the Act, all public and private bodies must have a PAIA manual, also known as a Section 51 Manual, as of 31 December.

Evans says this workshop will provide details of the practical steps to becoming POPI compliant, opportunities and benefits of POPI, elements to consider in achieving compliance, and frequently asked questions.

The afternoon component will take place from 12:30 to 15:30 and go through PropStats, IEASA’s residential sales database, clauses in offer to purchase contracts and tools of the trade. It will also include a finance update, which will cover the latest foreign exchange trends, bridging finance, rent to buy and FLISP subsidies.

The purpose of these sessions is to keep property professionals updated and give them an opportunity to network and ask questions to attorneys from the property chamber of the Cape Law Society and other subject matter specialists, says Evans.

Both sessions are open to members and non-members at a cost of R50 plus VAT and R295 plus VAT respectively.

Evans says attendees will receive certificates of attendance for each session to contribute to their non-verifiable continuous professional development for 2015.
