FAQFrequently Asked Ownership Questions
Black Rhino Game Reserve is unique in many aspects and requires the constant interaction between the Developer, North West Parks and the owners. The reserve is managed by the land owners through a duly accepted and underwritten constitution with the Pilanesberg National Park and represented by an executive committee of which the Developer forms a part. Each and every purchaser in the reserve has to become a signatory to the constitution and must accept the rights, privileges and duties as set out in therein.
The development is a sectional title scheme with a Home Owners Association to manage the development. Each owner automatically becomes a member of the Body Corporate and the Home Owners Association. Elected Trustees represent the Body Corporate. The Body Corporate and Home Owners Association operate as an integrated body for all practical purposes.
The Developer has established rules and regulations incorporated in the conditions relevant to the sectional title scheme. The rules primarily center around the relationship to and management thereof by all the owners with specific reference to the environment and wildlife issues.
Because of the limited number of stands available, interested prospective purchasers are required to sign an “Intent to Purchase” document to secure the stand of interest and pay a securing deposit of R150 000 (one hundred and fifty thousand rand). If requested a short but practically reasonable period of time is then allowed for an inspection of the site and a tour of the property. Thereafter, a formal “Agreement of Sale” would be entered into.
If needed it is possible to obtain finance for the purchase and development of a sectional title stand from most commercial banks as is the case for any other residential property.
Purchasers of stands can use their own architects to design their lodges subject to the architectural guidelines laid down for Black Rhino Game Reserve.
Investors are entitled to utilize their own construction teams to build their lodges. We can also make available the details of building contractors who have built lodges in Black Rhino. There is no prescribed timeframe within which the building process needs to commence. However once construction commences the dwelling must be completed within 12 months. Various site rules apply to the construction site and these are provided purchasers of stands.
The primary reason for acquiring a lodge or a share in a lodge in Black Rhino is for self (residential) use as opposed to commercial use which requires commercial rights. However unused time in private lodge residences may be let out to offset holding costs according to the rules of the HOA and, in the case of shared ownership lodges, the shareholders agreement.
Black Rhino is entitled to have 20 vehicles at any one time on game drives within the Pilanesberg National Park. FGASA qualified and registered owners are allowed to self-drive their own OSV’s in Pilanesberg National Park.
All Home owners pay a monthly levy to the HOA to cover common property costs such as reserve management, security, fence and road maintenance etc.
