INTERDICT AGAINST MANGAUNG MUNICIPALITY - ILLEGAL WATER DISCONNECTION

Dear Customer

 

We were granted an interdict against Mangaung Municipality.

All Complexes where water was disconnected will be re-connected


Mangaung was cutting bulk water supply to complexes around the city due to non-payment of individual owners' rates and taxes accounts.
We are of the opinion that it is illegal and unconstitutional.  


1. MMM did not give proper prior notice of their action as prescribed by their Credit control and Debt collection policy.

2.Municipal Property Rates Act:

25 Payment of rates on property in sectional title schemes
(1) A rate levied by a municipality on a sectional title unit is payable by the owner of the unit or the holder of a right contemplated in section 25 or 27 of the Sectional Titles Act.
[Sub-s. (1) substituted by s. 16 of Act 29 of 2014 (wef 1 July 2015).]
(2) A municipality may not recover the rate on a sectional title unit, or on a right contemplated in section 25 or 27 of the Sectional Titles Act registered against the sectional title unit, or any part of such rate, from the body corporate controlling a sectional title scheme, except when the body corporate is the owner of any specific sectional title unit, or the holder of such right.
[Sub-s. (2) substituted by s. 16 of Act 29 of 2014 (wef 1 July 2015).]
(3) A body corporate controlling a sectional title scheme may not apportion and collect rates from the owners of the sectional title units in the scheme.

 

Kindly keep paying your rates and taxes as due to MMM.


We assure you of our best intentions, at all times.


Yours Sincerely

WJ Du Toit
Managing Director
