On 28 November 2013, SERI and the Centre for Urbanism and Built Environment Studies (CUBES) officially launched two resource guides aimed at tenants and sectional title owners. The first, entitled A Tenant's Guide to Rental Housing, is aimed at assisting tenants to navigate the start, duration and end of the landlord-tenant relationship. As a companion to this, SERI has also published a separate guide called Rental Housing in South Africa: Legislation, Regulations and Case Law which includes the Rental Housing Act and the Gauteng Unfair Practices Regulations printed in full together with some guidelines to help readers navigate the content.

The second CUBES and SERI resource guide launched is called A Guide to Sectional Title in South Africa, which provides a brief description and explanation of the main issues that those involved in sectional title schemes should be aware of. It deals with a number of key questions that are commonly raised, and also lays out how certain disputes and challenges should be dealt with.
