Is your home a Prime Investment Property
It could be, if your complex is in good hands, the security management of a complex can greatly influence the value of a property.
Correctly managed, the services in a complex can contribute towards making the property more desirable, which will ensure a higher return on your investment than a complex which gives a negative first impression. Beginning with the part played by the Managing Agent who ensures that the finances of the complex are correctly managed, through to the role of the security company and its guards, the refuse collectors, estate managers, garden contractors and the maintenance crew; all must operate at the highest level in order to maintain the complex as a prime investment opportunity.
The Managing Agent in particular, plays a vital role. As the financial administrators of a complex or association, it is their responsibility to ensure that the budgets are adequate, suppliers are timeously paid, levies collected, legal issues are dealt with and that the body corporate or homeowners association operates within the realms of the relevant laws. Furthermore, accurate and regular reporting to trustees is vital in order to keep communication channels open and to ensure issues are dealt with appropriately and in reasonable time frames.
“Most body corporate and homeowner associations are managed by a group of volunteer Trustees who rely on the expertise and experience of a professional Managing Agent to ensure that the finances of their complex are properly managed. Where body corporate funds are not properly managed, problems may occur. These could include homeowners having to face an unexpected and expensive ‘special levy’ to cover maintenance costs which were inadequately provided for in the budget.”
At worst, they may even result in banking institutions refusing bonds over properties in the complex – making your investment a liability instead of an asset, conversely, a unit in an immaculate, well managed and financially strong complex will be in high demand.

“While most, if not all of the security team at Tinza are very competent and perform their duties well, I just wanted to take the time to single out a couple of guards who, in my opinion, really stand out. Johnson (whom I haven’t seen in a little while) and Mashudu know…”
