About Me

My photo

I am a qualified Attorney. I specialise in Property Law, Commercial Law, Corporate Law and Trusts.
 
Please visit our website at www.prop-law.co.za for more details.
 
I am an elected Committee Member of the Property Committee of the Association of Pretoria Attorneys and through my involvement, I like to ensure that I am constantly at the "sharp-end" of Conveyancing Practice.

I am the elected Chairman on the Gauteng Council of SAPOA. The South African Property Owners Association (SAPOA) is the biggest and most influential institution in the property industry. SAPOA members control about 90% of commercial property in SA, with a combined portfolio in excess of R150 Billion (about $22 Billion). I am also on the National Council and the National Legal Committee of SAPOA.
 
Member of the Institute of Directors South Africa and Member of the Sirdar Governance Panel.

I think that if they opened up this market to more players by creating a transparent tendering process, then by virtue of the fact that greater competition is present, then better services will be delivered. I am not referring to price competition but to product quality competition. In other words, those tendering should also be judged on the quality of their product and not only on price. There is too much cutting of corners by instant developers looking to make a quick buck. The only reason that they get away with it is because of some corrupt officials who are supposed to be monitoring the process.

I am a big admirer and supporter of Minister Tokyo Sexwale and I therefore hope that he can turn this department around.
