Work cut out for SAPOA president

Moving SA’s multibillion rand commercial property industry out of the jurisdiction of the troublesome public works department to trade and industry will be one of Estienne de Klerk’s top priorities.

The South African Property Owners Association (SAPOA) today announced it has a serious concern with government’s amendments to the SETA Grant Regulations.

THE state’s sale of nonstrategic properties could more than double the size of South Africa’s listed property sector and see transformation in the industry significantly accelerated.

Government's plan to implement carbon taxes from 2015 could contribute to the already high administered prices facing the commercial property industry.
 
The global search for income has prompted many of the world’s sovereign wealth and pension funds to increase their exposure to commercial property.

Estienne de Klerk is new SAPOA President

With his wealth of experience in the property and banking sector, new SAPOA President Estienne de Klerk is set to lead the representative body with a keen focus and passion for the property sector.  

THE South African Property Owners Association (Sapoa) is lobbying to see that the favourable tax dispensations of the newly launched real estate investment trust (Reit) structure are extended to unlisted property players.

Although commercial property pundits do not expect a crash in the sector following the industry’s strong run‚ some form of a correction could occur given a bond market that is unlikely to strengthen further.

IN A move to bring South Africa’s listed property sector in line with international standards, simplify tax handling and enhance governance, investors have been able to put money into real estate investment trusts (REITs) on the JSE since May 1.
