Managing apartments with sectional titles

Due to constant land supply, and the need to share amenities, demand for housing in Kenya is over 250,000 units per year against a development of about 50,000 units. Current development of residential houses in major urban areas is moving from detached units like bungalows and maisonettes to flats and apartments.

The latter are now coming up even in areas that had been zoned for low-density residential areas like Kileleshwa, Kilimani and Lavington estates in Nairobi. The Hass property index. Q4 2020 attests to this as in 2001, apartments took up23.5%of the market, semi-detached took 24.5% of the market and detached houses took 52% of the market. In December 2020 however, apartments took up 58.8% of the market, semi-detached houses took up 28.8% of the market and detached houses took up 12.4% of the market.

This is due to rapidly escalating value of land and the ever-rising cost of building materials that make cost of housing far beyond reach of the majority in urban population.

Flats and apartments are advantageous in that several housing units can be put up on a small parcel of land thereby increasing the occupancy density and lowering the prices of the units to affordable levels.
