The board will display the contact details of estate agents with the mandate to sell. Unfortunately there is a space restriction. Kindly forward the name and contact details of the estate agent with a mandate to sell at the Estate, to the Managing Agent.

It has been brought to our attention that Owners are commencing with building construction without applying for approval in writing to the Home Owners Association. We request that the following procedure is strictly adhered to: 1. Apply to Arthur Quinton Architect for the approval of the building plans. 2. Deposit a R20, 000 refundable builders deposit into the bank account of the Home Owners Association. 3. Complete the attached documents, Annexure B, and forward to the office of the Managing Agent. 4. Apply to the Home Owners Association for the approval of the building 2

plans. Failure to adhere to the above procedure, the Home Owners Association may reserve the right to prohibit any contractors from entering the Estate. Those who have applied, we thank you.

It is the owner’s responsibility to arrange any required municipal refuse bin. Kindly contact the local Municipality to arrange the above.

Due to bad weather, the landscaping completion date has been postponed. The new proposed date is September 2006. Prior to the completion of the landscaping and hand over to the Home Owners Association, the roads will be cleaned by the Developer.

Please note municipal accounts are being forwarded to the Estate directly. Kindly collect at the security house, and rectify your postal address accordingly.
