Fortified Capital Plus
There are a vast number of Community Schemes in South Africa that struggle to operate functionally as a result of non-paying unit owners. The non-payment of levies results in a shortfall in the operational budget which basically means that paying unit owners either end up subsidising non-paying unit owners’ levy amounts or the Community Scheme goes without essential services to the common property. This often results in unit owners’ property assets not being maintained and a general decay within the entire Community Scheme, causing a drop in the value of properties.
The Fortified Capital Plus lending solution is utilised to fund Community Schemes with arrear levy debtor problems, where a portion of unit owners have not paid their levies, and / or in respect of Arrear Levy Debts subrogated in terms of Levy Guarantee Insurance Policies.
