Schonenberg HOA

Establishment and Objective

The Home Owners’ Association (HOA) was established for the benefit of all owners of land units and sectional title units arising from the subdivision of Erf 15925, Somerset West, situated in the City of Cape Town, in the Western Cape Province.

There is only one overall Association for the Estate, which is governed by the Constitution (view under "DOCUMENTS" Estate Management Rules and Regulations – HOA Constitution 2016).

The main objective of the Association is to promote, advance and protect the common interests of its Members with respect to their ownership, use and enjoyment of the Erven and the Common Property comprising the Estate. Its functions include:

  • to maintain community-living standards so that its Members derive the maximum collective benefit;
  • to preserve the aesthetic standards, including the basic architectural style in the Estate;
  • to maintain the Common Property for the mutual benefit of its Members; and
  • to monitor and enforce compliance with the provisions of the Constitution, the Architectural Design Guidelines (view under “DOCUMENTS” Architecture & Building) and the Conduct Rules (view under “DOCUMENTS” Estate Management Rules and Regulations).

The HOA shall not be for profit, but for the benefit of its Members.

Membership

Upon registration of ownership of an Erf or Unit in the Estate, the owner automatically becomes a Member of the Association and is obliged to comply with the provisions of the Constitution, the Architectural Design Guidelines and the Conduct Rules. No person may cease to be a Member while remaining a registered owner, and Membership is only transferred to a new Member by registration of a Deed of Transfer at the Deeds Registry in Cape Town.

Monthly Levies

The levies are the contributions payable by every Member for the purpose of meeting all expenses which the HOA has incurred or which the trustee committee anticipates the HOA will incur by way of landscaping, estate roads and services thereon, the security systems and / or for payments of expenses necessary in connection with the management of HOA and the Common Property. The amount of the annual levy is determined and approved by the trustee committee.
