BODY CORPORATE WOES TO COLLECT LEVIES
Body Corporate of Empire Gardens v Sithole (240/2016)  ZASCA 28 (27 March 2017)
This judgment illustrates the dilemma often faced by bodies corporate in collecting arrear levies: although it acts on behalf of and for the well-being of all owners, it cannot sequestrate a defaulting owner if it cannot be shown that the step will also be for the benefit of all other creditors of the owner. Perhaps, as the court intimated, this needs the attention of the legislature.
