By Zerlinda van der Merwe
In this article, Zerlinda unpacks the right to privacy when living in a sectional title scheme. Security cameras installed on the scheme’s common property may potentially infringe an owner and occupier’s right to privacy. Zerlinda will similarly take a look at whether photographs taken, documenting breaches of the Sectional Titles Act (“the Act”) and the body corporate rules, may be considered as an infringement of an owner and occupier’s right to privacy.
