From the Desk of Marcel Deacon INVESTMENTING HOTEL SUITES   WITH the rapid growth of the South African tourism market over the past few years, hotel suite investments are fast becoming one of the popular ways for South Africans to invest in the property market. However, as this is a relatively new concept in the country, a lot of people do not fully understand this type of property investment. Hotel suite investment is a direct investment that enables investors to purchase a suite in a hotel development in terms of the Sectional Titles Act, just as they would a sectional title apartment. The unit is then contracted to the hotel and forms part of what is known as a “rental pool”, where the revenue of the hotel is distributed to the individual rental pool participants. But investing in a hotel suite is not the same as investing in a property syndication. In a property syndication, investors collectively buy into a single property and own an individual share in it. As such, they do not hold a title to their property in their own names. Property syndications are unlisted investment schemes and can be structured in various ways, with several cost layers. They are not subject to the rules and regulations of a formal exchange and … there is often scope for the creators of those schemes to manipulate property values and investors. Read more.
