Against the backdrop of ongoing measures to address the Covid-19 pandemic in South Africa, the Supplementary Budget 2020 highlighted several key aspects, says Dr Andrew Golding, chief executive of the Pam Golding Property group.

Following two months of hard lockdown, the development of a 2 047-bed student village at the University of Fort Hare (UFH) has resumed this week.

The Estate Agency Affairs Board (EAAB) will re-open its Sandton, Johannesburg offices before the end of June following their closure due to the COVID-19 lockdown.

London Stock Exchange listed Grit announced its intention to de-list from the JSE.

“The COVID-19 Crisis has changed the world a lot, perhaps less through introducing new trends and more through speeding up old trends,” said John Loos, FNB Economist at an FNB Commercial Property Finance (CPF) webinar earlier today.

Reports of the demise of the construction industry in South Africa are greatly exaggerated, says construction giant Grinaker-LTA.

The National Home Builders Registration Council will resume offering its full service operations at its main Provincial Offices as of Monday, 8th of June 2020 in line with the Level 3 Lockdown Regulations.

Shoppers slowly began returning to shopping centres and malls after lockdown restrictions were eased slightly on May 1 and activity is expected to pick up further when the country moves to level 3 lockdown  from June 1 says Fortress REIT, the owner of 60 malls across South Africa.

On Sunday evening, the President announced a relaxation in COVID-19-related lockdown measures, from level 4 to level 3 as from 1 June, which means the opening up of most retail activity, excluding restaurant and pub facilities.

The Covid-19 pandemic and South Africa’s lockdown regulations are impacting all aspects of our lives.
