There has been a significant increase in Community Scheme regulation in the past couple of years which has made it increasingly complex and expensive for Community Schemes to comply and operate in this strictly regulated environment. Community Schemes are constantly confronted with legal and regulatory issues, governance documentation amendments (MOI, Rules, etc.), dispute and dispute resolution procedures, conclusion of agreements and the like, all of which require knowledge and legal expertise to deal with.
The fact is that all Community Schemes need legal assistance at some point in time. The Community Scheme, through its executives, takes responsibility to ensure that the community scheme operates successfully. The executives operate in a regulated environment that can be new and confusing to them. Most Schemes can testify to the value that a commercial or labour lawyer will bring to their business, but for the majority of Community Schemes, retaining the services of a legal expert, is not a commercially viable option. Legal services can cost an arm and a leg and more often than not, schemes, and eventually the members of that scheme, are left with the financial burden of hefty legal expenses. A complex legal matter can be financially devastating.
But the good news is, there is a solution to this problem – CSL
