Registration and payment

  • Students must register online through the Paddocks website.
  • If three or more students register together as a group, they will be entitled to a 5% discount, provided that this has been arranged with a Paddocks staff member beforehand. Should one of the students cancel, the other two students will not receive a 5% discount on their course fee.
  • No two different discounts will be applied to any given course, as this is known as ‘double discounting’.
  • The course fees can be paid by credit card, EFT or direct deposit.
  • University of Cape Town courses run in conjunction with Paddocks do not attract VAT on course fees. Course fees are collected on behalf of the University of Cape Town, which as a higher education institution is VAT exempt. The Paddocks Home Owners’ Association Management course will still include VAT due to the fact that Paddocks as a company is still a VAT vendor.
  • Paddocks reserves the right to remove students from the course if they have not made their payments by the dates specified.
  • We no longer offer a workshop in Durban for the UCT Scheme Manager – Sectional Title short course. Should there be students interested from Durban, they will be required to travel to either Johannesburg or Cape Town.
  • Please note that unsettled fees or accounts of any nature owed to the University of Cape Town will result in a student being formally removed from the Paddocks course they are attending. Any payments made to Paddocks towards this course will be refunded upon your removal.
  • Students will be notified by SMS and email when payments are due to Paddocks.

Cancellations

  • Registrations cancelled in writing before the closing date of registrations will qualify for a refund of the payment made, but will be liable for a 10% cancellation fee (incl. VAT if applicable).
  • Registrations may not be cancelled after the closing date of registrations and students will be liable for the full course fee.
  • Paddocks reserves the right to cancel the course if there is insufficient demand. In this case, students will receive a full refund.
  • No refund will be given on the Paddocks Sectional Title Trustee Training Workshop once material has been sent to students.

Deferred registration

  • A student may request in writing that their participation be deferred to the next scheduled presentation of the course. For the University of Cape Town Sectional Title Scheme Management course and the Home Owners’ Association Management course, this request may be made before module 3 is made available to the students. For all other courses, this request may be made before module 2 is made available to the students.
  • Students who want to defer will need to pay a rollover fee of 50% (incl. VAT) of the course fee.
  • Please note that no credits will be awarded for assignments completed up until the time of deferral.
  • Paddocks does not guarantee that future presentations will be held. Any student who chooses to delay their participation in the course does so at their own risk.

Course participation

  • The course is presented in English and all courseware that is required for assessment purposes should be written by students in English. This includes posts made on the discussion forum.
  • Paddocks is not responsible for technical support for any external websites. Courses that require students to use external websites do so to achieve the best learning outcomes for the students. Students are required to contact the support services of the relevant external websites themselves.
  • For most Paddocks courses, interactive videos are provided in each module. These videos act as tutorials for the topics covered in that module and are not compulsory. Students will need Adobe Flash Player installed to view the video lectures available in each module.
  • Please note that if students are using a slower internet connection, attempting to view these videos may be troublesome. The videos are also downloadable for offline viewing. Students will not be penalised if they cannot watch the videos.
  • Students will only have access to the Course Instructor on the discussion forums. Course Instructors will not be available for queries by telephone or email.
  • Your Course Coordinator will guide you through the course. They will email notifications every week to encourage you to stay on track with your learning, and also to provide important course reminders and information.
  • Each module has its own discussion forum, these forums are for you to interact with your Course Instructor, Course Coordinator and fellow students. Your Course Instructor will be able to help clarify any content related questions on the forums.
  • The Paddocks Learning website is not fully compatible with mobile devices, including smartphones and tablets. In order to access and participate effectively on the Learning website, students must have access to a computer.

Course assessment

The following assessment criteria apply to the majority of Paddocks courses.

  • A certificate of completion is awarded to students who achieve a mark of 50% or higher.
  • Every module includes an assignment that counts a certain percentage towards the final course mark. The Course Instructor is required to mark students written assignments and an allocated time period is given within which this marking needs to be completed. During this time, students will be required to submit further assignments. Any queries related to a student’s previous assignment that will affect the submission of the student’s next assignment should be asked on the module discussion forum.

General

These terms and conditions (T&Cs) apply to every situation in which Paddocks provides legal advice or opinions. No variation of these T&Cs is effective unless we have agreed to that variation in writing. The terms “Paddocks”, “we” and “us” used in these T&Cs means Paddocks.

In addition, you are representing that you are over the age of 18 and are legally entitled to enter into contracts. If you represent a community scheme, managing agency or any other artificial personality, you are warranting that you are duly authorised to contract with Paddocks. It is a requirement that the mandate form, sent with the quotation, is signed before the consultation takes place.

It is your responsibility to provide complete and accurate information, and documents when we request any of these from you. If you fail to do this, the quality of our work will be negatively affected. We will not be responsible for any consequences that may arise from any delay caused by you, or your failure to provide information or documents requested by us.

You agree to receive communications from us electronically on the email address you provide for this purpose and agree that it is your responsibility to ensure that this address remains current, or to advise us of a replacement address during the course of the service.

In requesting a quotation, you are considered to confirm that all information and particulars provided by you to us (in whatever form) are true, correct and accurate to the best of your knowledge, and you indemnify us for all losses and damage resulting from your providing false or inaccurate information.

We will amend the document as soon as possible, whether the error or inaccuracy is due to our error or not. If the error reveals that you gave us incorrect instructions or that your instructions have changed, we will quote you for the work required to adapt the document. If you fail to discover or notify us of any mistake, error or inaccuracy in a document we draft and proceed to sign or publish it to any third party, any subsequently discovered error or inaccuracy will not be considered to be due to our fault, negligence or mistake.

In the event of a cancellation:
Notice of the cancellation is required at least 24 hours before the consultation. The client will then have the option to reschedule a new date and time for the consultation, or be refunded in full.

Should the cancellation of be made within 24 hours of the scheduled consultation, there will be an additional administration fee charge of 10%. If the client wishes to reschedule the consultation, the administration fee would need to be paid prior to confirmation of the new date and time of the consultation. If the client wishes to be refunded, the refund would be the consultation rate minus a 10% administration fee.

  • Bookings are limited to one 10 minute consultation per consultant, per working day.

  • The legal advice will be based on the facts and circumstances provided telephonically by the client, and Paddocks or the consultants will not be held responsible based on the information they were given in order to give the advice.
  • If, during the consultation, the consultant becomes aware that there may be a risk of conflict of interest in giving the client advice, the consultant reserves the right to terminate the telephonic consultation immediately. In this case the consultation fee will be refunded in full.

Paddocks’ obligations

All of the information submitted by you that is not publicly available will be treated as confidential. We will not investigate the truth of any accusations or alleged facts you give us before providing our advice. Therefore, the truth of any statement made by you will be taken for granted and we will not be responsible or liable for any action taken by a third party against you.

We will do our best to furnish advice or opinions, taking into account the agreed priority of the matter, as soon as possible after we receive payment (either once proof of payment is received by us or we process your payment by credit card), answers to our follow-up questions, and any required documentation. If we are going to be unable to meet our original expectations for a delivery date, we will advise you as soon as possible after this becomes evident.

Advice and opinions given by us are given in good faith on the basis of the information provided for this purpose. Neither we nor any person who drafts advice or an opinion is liable to you or to any third party for any factual or legal errors made in good faith.

Our advice and opinions are given for your information. You are entitled to publish our opinions and advice to third parties, but our legal relationship is only with you and only you are entitled to rely on our advice. We reserve the right not to enter into correspondence with third parties in regard to any advice we have given you.

Our liability to you, in respect of any loss or damage that may be suffered by you arising from the services (whether arising under contract, delict, strict liability or otherwise, and whether or not the services have been terminated), excludes liability for any consequential, exemplary, extrinsic, indirect, incidental, punitive, pure economic or special loss or damage of any kind, is limited to direct damages only, and is limited to the total amount of the fees paid by you in connection with the services rendered in any particular instruction. We are not liable for any loss or damage that results from something you do or fail to do (such as giving us the wrong information or not giving us information at a time we ask for it).

The law can be applied to facts and interpreted in different ways and therefore opinions are our views on how the law should be interpreted by an independent judge, arbitrator, adjudicator or other person who applies it to the facts and documents you provide to us. We do not guarantee our opinions or give any representation, warranty, or indemnity with regard to them.

We are not obliged to quote on, or to give, any requested advice or opinion. If, after agreeing to perform a service, we decide that we are no longer willing or able to do so, we reserve our rights to terminate the contract on notice to you via email, in which case you will be entitled to a refund of payment made for that service but you will not have any other claim whatsoever against us.

If a completed or executed document cannot be used for the purpose for which it was designed due to our error, and provided you inform us of this within three days from the date it was sent by email, we will give you a full refund within 28 days of being notified or prepare a fresh document for you at no charge. This is the limit of our liability to you, and you waive all other rights you may have against us at law or otherwise.
