Concerned about slow development processes in the Western Cape, the South African Property Owners Association (SAPOA) has commissioned a ground-breaking study into the value of the private property sector in the province – and the economic costs of inefficient property development processes.

The sudden stoppage of building plan approvals in the Nelson Mandela Bay municipality is causing serious concern in the commercial and industrial property sector, with the SA Property Owners’ Association (SAPOA) quick to raise a red flag concern about the situation.

SAPOA is at the vanguard of a new initiative to create global property measurement standards for property investors and users alike as part of the International Property Measurement Standards Coalition (IPMSC).

SA property sector welcomes Limpopo clean-up

The South African Property Owners Association (SAPOA) has welcomed the latest changes in the Limpopo Provincial Government - a province where it is continually tackling property issues with a negative impact on the commercial and industrial sector.

The Green Building Council SA (GBCSA) has taken up residence at its inspired new green office at the Blackriver Park complex in Observatory, Cape Town.

Land reform in South Africa needs to be addressed, but it shouldn’t come at the cost of food security or by breaking up economically efficient enterprises. 

SAPOA has welcomed the education benefits that aspiring property professionals will once again enjoy thanks to the reintroduction of the BSC Property Development programme, leading to the Honours Degree in Construction Management and Quantity Surveying, at the University of KwaZulu-Natal.

The South African Property Owners Association (Sapoa) has added it voice to the condemnation of collusion in the building sector.

Thanks to the persistence of SAPOA and its legal department, the commercial and industrial property sector has won a key battle against illegal land uses in the Northern Province city of Polokwane.

The DPW signs property leases on behalf of government departments, but has never before had a formal discussion with the property sector about issues of mutual interest.
