The full deposit required is 10% of the purchase price within 3 days of purchasing the unit.

The balance (90%) will need to be secured within 21 days by either a bond approval, bank guarantee, or cash.

Alternatively, we will also accept a 30% deposit payable within 3 days of signature with the balance payable 180 days prior to the transfer.

Should you be paying for the unit in cash, you can also opt for a non-refundable 30% deposit, in which case the balance only needs to be secured six months prior to transfer and completion of the development.

Does the deposit earn me interest?

The deposit is paid into the transferring attorney’s interest-bearing account and your money will earn interest.

The benefits of purchasing on launch

  • R200 000 launch day discount
  • Best selection of units
  • Capital appreciation for 18 months is estimated at 10,5% (7% pa) while the development is under construction
  • Rare opportunity to own an apartment in an exclusive Atlantic Seaboard neighbourhood

What happens if my bond is not approved, do I get my deposit back?

Yes, the deal is subject to your bond being approved and should it not be approved the deposit is paid back to you with interest. If you are unsure if you can afford the bond it is a good idea to get pre-qualified prior to the launch as the R10,000 reservation fee is not refundable.

Once my bond is approved, when do I start paying?

Bond repayments will commence once the property has been transferred to your name and the bank has settled the payment to the seller.

Bond registration costs and transfer costs

Bond costs are payable at the time that the bond registers, once the development is complete.

To calculate the bond registration and transfer costs you can click on the below link:

VAT Inclusive and no Transfer duties

There is no transfer duty payable but there are transfer costs (attorney costs).

The seller is registered for VAT so there will be no transfer duty but only transfer costs payable.

What are the transfer fees?

To calculate the transfer costs you can click on the below link: 

NB: Please select ‘yes’ when it asks if the seller is registered for VAT.

What do the levies include?

Levies are determined in terms of sectional title and exclusive use areas of the apartments and associated parking and storerooms as applicable. Levies are calculated at a standard rate to be determined.

They cover the costs of security, cleaning & upkeep of the common areas, maintenance of the building, building insurance, all running and management costs.


Monthly rates are calculated based on the value of the property and then multiplied by 0.006344 to get your yearly rates. Divide this by 12 to get your monthly rates.


R3,790,000 x 0.006344 = R14 584 per annum

This equates to R1 215 per month

Are there any hidden costs?

No hidden costs. VAT inclusive, no transfer duty.

Note: Levies, Rates, taxes and CID will be payable by the purchaser from the date of transfer.

The contract price is the price the client will pay for the property. You must be aware that there is occupational interest due from the date you take occupation until you take ownership (when transfer takes place).

The other costs applicable are detailed above and include monthly rates and levies. Bond and transfer costs will be payable prior to registration of your bond and prior to you taking transfer of your unit. The interest that you earn on your deposit during the construction period will largely offset these costs.

When will we be able to move in/find a tenant?

After the completion of the development, the transfer process will commence. Occupation will be given as soon as an occupation certificate is in hand and you will be able to occupy or rent out your apartment from the date of occupation.

Section 13Sex Tax Incentive

Investors have access to powerful tax incentives, including the popular Section 13sex of the Income Tax Act No 58 of 1962. This scheme enables any taxpayer who owns five or more new, residential rental units (do not all have to be from the same development), to claim up to 55% of the purchase price as a tax deduction.


  • Purchase five units at a total purchase price of R19 868 075
  • Minus the launch discount = R1 000 000 (R200 000 per unit, if purchased on launch)
  • Final purchase price = R18 868 075
  • Deemed cost for S13sex allowance = R10 377 441 (55% of final purchase price)
    5% of the deemed cost may be used as a deduction from your taxable income each year for the next 20 years.
  • This works out to a tax deduction of R518 872 per year for 20 years equating to a total tax deduction of R10 377 441 (over 20 years).

Taxpayer Criteria for Section 13Sex:

  • The taxpayer must own at least 5 residential units. The deal is recognised once the buyer takes ownership of their 5th new unit and the 5th unit is rented out and earns a taxable income (i.e. all five units must be rented out). A residential unit refers to a building or self-contained apartment, mainly used for residential accommodation with the exclusion of structures used for business purposes, for example, hotels.
  • All units must be situated in South Africa.
  • Residential units must have been purchased new and unused. (For example, buyers of flats that had previously been occupied would not qualify for this incentive.)
  • The units must be used solely for the purpose of trade (i.e. residential letting). This prevents housing claims for personal use.

Please consult your tax advisor for further clarification and information.

Buying off-plan property in Cape Town

  1. Cape Town sees an average annual capital growth of 10%, so your property value is growing at roughly 10% pa while you are only required to pay the  10% deposit.
  2. This means you are getting growth on the full purchase price of the property and only have to expend a fraction of the price.
  3. Efficient letting will ensure that this largely covers the investment property bond expense for you.
  4. Your rental income increases every year but bond repayments depending on interest rates generally stay the same and in relation to yearly salary and incomes inflating, the bond repayments become relatively cheaper every year.
  5. There is high demand for secure luxury property in Cape Town’s City Centre and Atlantic Seaboard, resulting in a secure long-term investment.
  6. The longer it takes to enter the property market the harder it becomes.
  7. Property investment is likely to create long-term sustainable wealth and an ever-increasing annuity income.
