Welcome to the South African Property Owners Association


SAPOA, or the South African Property Owners Association, is the representative body and official voice of the commercial and industrial property industry in South Africa.

The South African Property Owners Association (SAPOA) was established in 1966 by the leading and large property investment organizations to bring together all role players in the commercial property field and create a powerful platform for Property Investors. SAPOA, the Voice of Commercial Property, is recognized as the representative body and official voice of the commercial and industrial property industry in South Africa, with a combined portfolio in excess of R 500 billion. SAPOAmembers control approximately 90% of all commercial and industrial property in South Africa.

We are held in very high esteem by the relevant sectors of government and are therefore consulted on all matters pertaining to the property industry. SAPOA also enjoys representation on key South African bodies, which are key to the country's property development.
