TO TELL OR NOT – AVOIDING THE PITFALLS OF THE DUTY OF DISCLOSURE

There might come a time that you will be obliged to sell your property, whether in the Centurion Residential and Golf Estate or elsewhere. As a purchaser you will be very interested in the property and want to know all its qualities, both the good and the bad. Many sellers avoid disclosing information, attempting to hide behind the “voetstoots”-clause, considering the clause a magic cloak under which to hide all damp, the leaking swimming pool and the problematic gas stove. In terms of the law, a seller has a duty to disclose certain facts which are within his knowledge at the time of the agreement being concluded. The “Voetstoots”-clause stipulates that the seller is not to be held responsible for diseases or defects and goods are sold “as it stands” or “with all its faults”. Although the seller does not take the risk of the presence of any diseases or defects, the seller remains liable for misrepresentations of any kind. Where a seller has concealed a latent defect, the seller will not be able to hide behind the “voetstoots”-clause. A latent defect is an impairment of the usefulness of the item sold and is not discoverable upon reasonable inspection by an ordinary person, whom is not an expert. The defect renders the purchased item unfit for the purpose for which it is bought or for which it is normally used. This is determined objectively. Although the courts have on numerous occasions confirmed the common law principle that no general duty on a seller to disclose exist, the courts have held that there are three situations when the silence of the seller will give rise to an action based on non-disclosure, namely where there is concealment, where there is a designed concealment or where there is a simple nondisclosure. It should be noted that there is no duty on a seller to disclose where the seller does not know that the purchaser acted under an erroneous belief. Where the seller intentionally concealed the defect he will be guilty of misrepresentation. The purchaser may cancel the agreement and claim damages based on breach of contract. The breach must be sufficiently serious to warrant cancellation

This will also be the case where the purpose of the concealment was to mislead. The seller will not be protected by a “voetstoots” clause where he had knowledge of the latent defect at time of conclusion of the contract and fraudulently concealed it. A seller may only rely on a “voetstoots” clause where he was honest. The seller has a duty to disclose information where such information does not fall within the scope ofthe purchaser; there is no possibility that the purchaser could obtain such knowledge on his own and the information falls within the exclusive knowledge of the seller, subsequently results in unequal bargaining positions. Although the common law has been amended by the Consumer Protection Act, many agreements fall outside the ambit of the CPA because of the scope of its application. Where, for example, a home owner wants to sell his residential property or even vacation property and sells it once-off or not in the ordinary course of his business, the common law position discussed above will be applicable. The same of course applies where the items sold is movable property, for instance a motor vehicle. Typical examples where the CPA will apply to the sale of immovable property would be where the seller is a property developer and investors who buy, renovate and sell houses as a business. It is therefore very important to note that certain specific information that falls within the knowledge of the seller is to be disclosed to the purchaser. So what information must the seller disclose to the purchaser? Information to be disclosed, especially if it falls within your knowledge, includes, but is not limited to:

5. The presence of damp or mould above the damp course; 6.  An emptied swimming pool caused by leakage; 7. The solar geyser only heating water using electricity due to some fault; 8.  A broken swimming pool pump, borehole pump, electric motor gate or intercom system if installed and identified or advertised; 9. A filled and/or sealed borehole, especially if the borehole was an advertised feature of the property; 10.  A serious white-ant infestation causing damage or previous unrepaired damage; 11. A leaking roof; 12. Protected plants (including trees) or plants requiring permits planted in the garden; 13. The broken or malfunctioning oven or stove which was not yet replaced or repaired; and 14.  Security or floodlights installed but not connected to any power supply. Lastly, the latin maxim of caveat subscriptor, loosely translated as beware he whom signs, must be brought under the prospective purchaser’s attention. Make sure that you have carefully perused the property, asked all the relevant questions and received honest answers. Be careful in your inspection of the property and notice fresh paint, watermarks on floors, in cupboards and on carpets. Because once you have signed, you might just be bound to the agreement with no or very little remedies available to you.

1.  Any notice rezoning the neighbouring properties for any use other than normal residency which has come to the seller’s knowledge; 2. The existence of any human graves on the property; 3. Any notice of building contravention that has been served on the seller regarding his own property; 4. Proclamation as a historical monument;

Birdrunner: New races, faces and birding places Yes, it is that time of year again: autumn… Leaves are starting to change colour, shops exhibit winter clothing and many visiting birds return to their homes abroad. But this does not mean that we have to press the pause button on our ‘internal remotes’: there are still many things to enjoy despite the colder weather and shorter days. If you are a frequent reader of the Birdrunner column, you will know by now that Birdrunner is going to suggest two things: birding and running/ walking. But there are so many facets of these two hobbies and so many possibilities involved, that you will probably struggle to get bored with either. Many of the places that one can visit in our country and even overseas have potential for birding, running and or walking. Whether it is for business or for leisure, there is no reason why one cannot add a new bird to your life list whilst being away. You can even discover the town or city on foot if you have the time available and if it is safe to do so. Although we live in a wonderful Estate and city with many activities to take part in, a weekend away often helps to calm us down amidst our very busy lifestyles. If you are planning a visit somewhere, why not find out in advance if there are bird ‘specials’ in the area or running/walking races coinciding with the dates of your visit. Recently, the Birdrunner was privileged to visit a farm outside Sasolburg in the Free State province. During the weekend away, she also took part in a 10km road race, met interesting new people and saw 10 birds for the first time ever

The race

On 1 February 2014, the 20th Sasol Marathon was held at the DP de Villiers Stadium in Sasolburg. Sasolburg is approximately 125km from Centurion and is situated on the banks of the Vaal River, which used to be the boundary between the old Transvaal province and the Orange Free State. The race, which is proudly sponsored by Sasol, was very well organised and participants could choose between distances of 42,2km, 21,1km, 10km or 4,9km. The full marathon consisted of two laps of the fairly flat 21,1km route. One of the well-known features of the race (especially the half and the full marathon) is the excitement surrounding the water tables. The hosts of the different water tables compete for being the best refreshment station. You will find superheroes, ‘meerkats’ and other friendly people along the way, offering not only water, but also potatoes, bananas, chocolates, sweet drinks and other valuable items for consumption. Although more than a thousand people completed the race (in total for all distances combined), the crowd of participants is not so big that one struggles to find parking or waste a lot of precious time trying to get over the start line (as is often the case with Gauteng races). One can also qualify for the Old Mutual Two Oceans and the Comrades by completing the full marathon in less than five hours. Birdrunner would really like to recommend all readers to take part in this race next year, whether as an exciting family outing, an opportunity to run a PB (running jargon for a “personal best”) like Birdrunner’s husband, or simply to experience the hospitality of the local residents.

The people

n

Do you know this bird?

During the same trip, Birdrunner and her husband met two of the most skilled and avid birders they have ever come across, Dawie and Sarieta Kleynhans. Dawie is a school principal in Sasolburg and his wife, Sarieta, also works at a school, but in finance. Dawie atlases (see Birdrunner, February 2014, for an explanation of ‘atlasing’) a few times per week and you will often find him recording yet another species on his voice recorder. Dawie en Sarieta both have around 800 Southern African bird species on their life lists (which is truly remarkable, as there are only 900-andsomething species listed for the Southern African region, of which some have only been encountered once or twice in the region when they accidentally ended up here…). Their knowledge about birds, their sounds, expected behaviour, etc. is astonishing and so are their kind-heartedness and willingness to teach others.

Birdrunner and her husband stayed with family on a farm outside Sasolburg for the weekend and were excited to see a few members of the bird species in the picture during their stay. Birdrunner’s husband took the picture with the help of his uncle (it was dark when the picture was taken and a spotlight needed to be used). Guess what bird it is and sms/tweet your answer to the Birdrunner (contact details below). This is not a competition, but simply for fun.

They are also ‘twitchers’ (here is your new birding term for the month!): in simple terms, ‘twitchers’ are birders who will put in significant effort to find a rare bird upon hearing a report that it has been found somewhere. This quite often requires travelling from one corner of the country to another on short notice. And you are not guaranteed that the bird will still be there when you get there… The couple kindly offered to take Birdrunner and her husband around in the Sasolburg area to do some birding. And was this serious birding! When we started our outing at 06h00, we had 389 Southern African bird species on our life list. We planned to return at 09h00, hoping to have seen maybe one or two lifers – at this stage, it can take us a few weeks or even months to find a bird that we have not yet seen. We ended up spending around six hours on intensive birding and would have spent even more if it was not time to return to Pretoria! Did we find our one or two lifers? You will see in ‘The birds’ below… The birds We travelled only about a km or two before we saw our first lifer for the day: a South African Cliff Swallow (familieswael). The Birdrunner is not good at identifying swallows or swifts (the latter spends almost their entire lifetime flying) and, therefore, adding a lifer from one of these two groups does not happen often.

What about trying out one (or more) of these walking/running events in Gauteng (mid-March to mid-April)? Please confirm details on the Internet. 12 Mar Zwartkop Nite Race (5 or 10km on the Zwartkop Golf Course; there are three races in the series of which this is the second one, but you can choose to run one, two or all three of the races in the series) 15 Mar Klap-’n-Tekkie (5 or 10km; Fonteinedal; in aid of elderly care; you can find entry forms at The Sweat Shop, Southdowns, or phone Elna: 083 443 9373) 16 Mar Gallopers (5 or 8km; Germiston) Hyundai Rock n Run (Sandton) 21 Mar Sunnypark Right to Run/Walk 22 Mar Great Run Series 27 Mar Merell Autumn Night Run

We visited some strange places, like the local dump, and eventually added nine lifers to our list! One of the special birds we saw was the Maccoa Duck (bloubekeend), a rare duck with a bright blue bill. Dawie took us to Meulsteenpan, near Zamdela, to have a look at this beautiful bird.

29 Mar Denel Freedom Day Half Marathon and 10km

The other birds we saw for the first time, were the Kalahari Scrub Robin (Kalahariwipstert), the Montagu’s Harrier (blouvleivalk) – also a rare bird, the African Reed Warbler (kleinrietsanger), Little Rush Warbler (Kaapsevleisanger), Desert Cisticola (woestynklopkloppie), Cloud Cisticola (gevlekteklopkloppie) and the beautiful Fan-tailed Widowbird (kortstertflap).

CAPTAIN’s report WOW – have we had some bad weather or what! It’s quite a sight when you stand on the balcony at the club and stare down at the lake that extends from the 18th fairway all the way to the 7th river. The only thing that could be seen of the 8th hole was the flag pole. That being said, what followed was nothing short of a miracle…to Petrie and his team, a HUGE vote of thanks for the effort put into cleaning up the course and getting it as playable as quickly as they did. Yes, we played without the bunkers being in play due to the efforts being required elsewhere, but playing is playing! I must also comment on how supportive the membership have been during this time, not only in terms of the understanding and appreciation of the efforts put in, but also with the common sense that has prevailed with regards to the use of golf carts. We have a new sponsor for the monthly Captains Challenge – Hokaai Centurion. I would not only like to welcome Hokaai on board for the year, but also take time to recognise Pieter Roodt who is the owner of Hokaai and a resident of Centurion Estate as well. Thank you Pieter for coming on board and we look forward to your participation in the monthly challenge. For those of you who haven’t been to Hokaai, pop in and support Pieter and his team! The league programme for the year is well and truly underway, and I look forward to seeing the Centurion flag flying high once again. If you have not put your name down to play in the leagues, please do so, the lists are on the notice board.

y d aCAPTAIN’s report

It’s now back to reality for all of us after a most welcome break. In December Tilla and I along with my daughter, Jamie, hosted the yearly Irene Homes Christmas Lunch. This is a luncheon that Centurion Country Club donates to the ladies that live at Irene Homes and don't get to go home and spend Christmas with their families for whatever reason. It was the 4th time that I have hosted this luncheon, and I have found it to be one of the most fulfilling parts of being the Lady Captain, being able to spend time with these ladies. I would like to thank Errol Hart, the club manager, and Amarille Vorster and Belinda of Kuxuxa Foods for making this yearly event possible. I have placed the thank you letter that I received from Irene Homes in the Interface for you all to read. The ‘Early Birds’ had their final prize giving for 2013 in December. The Most improved player for 2013 was a new member, Piret Vilborn. Piret is a very keen golfer who is showing lots of golfing talent on the golf course. She improved her handicap in a matter of months from 36 down to 28... Well done Piret, keep it up. The Trophy for best average stableford points in the category H/C up to 27 was won by Elize Visser. The plate for best average stableford points with a h/c of 28+ went to Shadi Mohuba. Well done to our winners.

Prize winners: Piret, Shadi, Eize, Tanya and Tilla

This years’ ‘Early Birds’ ladies competition played on a Thursday morning is once again underway. My vice captain, Tilla Janssen, is now running the ‘Early Birds’ competition each week. Tilla can be contacted on tillajanssen33@gmail. com. The Thursday ladies league started on 6 February 2014 and the league coordinator is myself. Hayley Mendes, Sue Smith, Joey du Toit, Piret Vilborn, Helga Engling and Anna-Marie v d Bijl have made themselves available for this years’ Thursday league... good luck girls let's see if we can win that trophy this year, sure we all going to give it our best shot! If you would like to make yourself available for the Saturday and Mixed League please send me a mail. Both these leagues start a little later in the year. Tilla has made herself available to stand as lady captain from April 2014 when my term comes to an end. We require a lady member to make themselves available to join the ladies committee from April. If you would like to join the committee please contact myself, Tilla or Errol Hart. Have a great golfing month... till next month. Hayley Mendes 083 660 5499 hayley.mendes@gmail.com

cure day clinics an appropriate facility. Cure Day Clinics is currently the biggest day surgery hospital company in SA. The first clinic, Medkin, was acquired in 2008 - a facility with three theatres and 27 beds. Five years later, the company also has clinics in Erasmuskloof in Pretoria, Midstream in Centurion, and the St. Stephen’s hospital in Paarl, while building commenced with two others, in Bloemfontein and Somerset West, in October 2013.

Although not a completely new model, the concept of day surgery clinics to curb rising healthcare costs, is fast gaining momentum in SA. Funders, patients and doctors are now considering day hospitals as the ‘next big thing’ to save costs, improve efficiencies, reduce waiting times and free up beds in acute hospitals for more serious cases. Admitting few emergency cases at day hospitals, ensures that operating schedules are adhered to, and helps patients and family to plan their days. “In addition, technological innovations and advances in surgical techniques and anaesthesia have increased the number of elective procedures that can be performed as day cases. This has resulted in faster recovery times, fewer side effects and, most importantly, is helping to reduce the risk of hospital-acquired infections due to short stays, said Dr John Bethune-Williams, chief clinical officer and anaestheologist of Cure Day Clinics Holdings. Patients undergoing day procedures are carefully screened and day hospitals have strict admission and discharge criteria. “All our day hospitals are fully equipped for any medical emergency and our staff are trained accordingly,” said Sr Anina de Bruyn, operational manager of Cure Day Clinics. Should an emergency occur and if the patient needs to stay overnight, contingency plans are in place to transfer a patient to

“Day hospitals are here to stay and are changing the healthcare market,” said Marianne Engelbrecht, Marketing Consultant at Cure Day Clinics, adding that they have been awarded several more licences to build similar facilities in the rest of the country successfully - (Polokwane, Pietermaritzburg, Blaauwberg, Bellville and Vredendal). “The company’s vision is to establish a national footprint of day surgery hospitals in SA in the future.”

100 doctors use the state-of-the-art theatre facilities on a regular basis, with an average of around 300 procedures performed per month. These include gynaecology, plastic and reconstructive surgery, urology, dermatology, ophthalmology, laparo-, arthroand hysteroscopies, certain orthopaedic procedures and dental and general surgery. The total costs of these operations are, on average, significantly lower than in acute hospitals because there is no overnight stay and lower running costs. Dr Bethune-Williams also said: “The day hospital concept should benefit the larger hospitals by freeing up theatre space and beds for very ill patients and emergencies, reducing waiting times for patients and doctors, and improving the utilisation of hospital capacity and staff.”

The group is already consulting with government on how these facilities can assist in extending quality, affordable and accessible healthcare also to the uninsured. “They [government] see day hospitals in assisting NHI requirements,” noted Dr Bethune-Williams. The group has also been a recipient of the Department of Health’s healthcare rewards in the category publicprivate partnerships for its contribution to assist children from orphanages and disadvantaged backgrounds to receive world-class dental care, free of charge. More than 500 children have benefited from this project over the past five years. To celebrate Mandela Day this year, 67 children from orphanages were selected to undergo dental procedures and tonsillectomies free of charge. According to Engelbrecht, recruiting doctors to move their elective operating lists from acute to day hospitals was initially a challenge. But after realising the efficiencies, the cost and time that can be saved and, above all, the high-quality personal care their patients receive in the relaxed, quiet ‘day care’ environment, there has been a significant mind shift, she said. Currently, at the Erasmuskloof hospital alone, more than
