Connecta Realty CEO - Charles Baker “My interest and fascination with the intriguing world of Sectional Title & Share Block scheme management provides me with the perfect forum and platform to achieve absolute job satisfaction. I deem myself extremely lucky to have the opportunity to devote my time, effort and expertise on a daily basis to a concept and lifestyle that gives me tremendous personal pleasure and which holds such intense interest for me. From my very first encounter with sectional title matters, firstly as an owner, leading on to my participation as a general trustee and then chairperson, I realised that a direction change to my established career in general property administration within the real estate industry was inevitable.” Your alternative to nightmare scheme management!

He struck me then as a diligent and friendly boy. Our paths crossed again seven years ago, when Charles took it upon himself to track me down after I had been severely injured in a bomb blast in Cape Town in 1998. A friendship has subsequently developed and I am pleased to report that the seeds planted in those earlier days have taken root. Charles is an emotionally mature man who clearly lives his life in a goal focused manner. Further, he possesses tenacity and perseverance in pursuit of his objectives. These competencies coupled to the fact that Charles’ honesty and integrity are unquestionable and that he is a “people person” make Charles a team player and a wonderful supporting friend.“

Scheme Management System Nobody involved in sectional title management can debate the need for accurate and quality administrative & financial record keeping, which is critical to effective scheme governance.

We believe that sectional title education is paramount, and that it plays a crucial and vital role in the propensity for sustained success, in both the financial and harmonious living aspects, of each and every sectional title scheme / body corporate. In this regard we are incredibly proud to be able to provide the sectional title community with regular presentations of our very own four-hour introductory training seminar entitled “Sectional Title For Dummies”. The majority of the day-to-day problems surrounding the complexities of Sectional Title are fabricated directly from, and as a result of, the dissemination of incorrect hearsay and bad advice, stemming from a poor, and frequently incorrect, interpretation of the most basic provisions of the Sectional Title Act No.95 of 1986. Sectional Title For Dummies is specifically designed to address these everyday myths and common misconceptions and will suitably put the basic principles and fundamental mechanics of Sectional Title into clear perspective. Topics and terms & concepts discussed include; Section Plans, Bodies Corporate, Rules, Participation Quotas / Adjusted Values, Levies & Levy Obligations, Occupants (Owners & Tenants), Common Property, Exclusive Use Areas, AGM Requirements, Scheme Insurance, Trustees, Annual Budgeting, Scheme Finances (Reserve Funds), Financial Statements, Quorums, Special & Unanimous Resolutions and Levy Clearance Certificates. This training seminar will benefit everyone involved with Sectional Title, as well as those who have future plans which include a potential encounter with Sectional Title i.e. Estate Agents (Selling & Rental), Owners, Tenants, Trustees, Buyers, Sellers, Caretakers / Supervisors, Investors and Loan Consultants etc. Sectional Title For Dummies is run monthly to cater for a mixed general audience, but special group presentations, ideal for trustees and body corporate members (owners) etc, can be arranged on request and in the comfort of their own establishment or venue.
