Business compliance is no small issue. South African legislation is aimed at ensuring compliance within larger, medium and smaller organisation and the term “compliance” covers a wide range of areas.
If you are a property practitioner, the FICAA, POPIA and Property Practitioners Act directly affect your operations and the development and implementation of proper internal and external policies in respect of these three pieces of legislation are now inevitable.
Melanie offers different compliance packages to businesses of all sizes depending on the needs of that business. The first consultation is usually free of charge and important in order to establish exactly what will be required, the cost thereof and deadlines for implementation.
Melanie’s compliance services stem from an interest in compliance and being active in the FICAA sphere within the law practice in which she worked for many years as a director coupled with an interest in the academics behind compliance legislation and how the laws relate to practice.
Melanie will review existing Policies, make suggestions and amend the necessary business documents. Training the employees and management will then usually follow where after support is offered on an ongoing basis to ensure the smooth implementation of the new procedures.
Property practitioners all too often work with template contracts and documents without fully understanding the need for certain clauses. The need for contracts to be updated from time to time is also on the rise since property laws change regularly and with the introduction of the Property Practitioners Act 2019 in April 2021, many legislative changes must be made to agreements in order to comply with the PPA.
