By Björn Laubscher
Not only does the trustees’ duty entail selecting a suitable insurance advisor - preferably one that specialises in sectional title insurance - but also declaring the desired sum insured as neither the insurance broker, nor the managing agent can be expected to shoulder this enormous responsibility.
In this article, Björn talks about how important it is for the trustee to know if the scheme is insured to full replacement value. (Reading time ± 3 min)

UCT Sectional Title Scheme Management Short Course

It’s very interesting, because while many people do the course because their employers require it, many others say they did the course to increase their knowledge of sectional title management.
