Why a Conveyancer?

CONVEYANCERS MUST ENSURE THAT:

  • The transaction documents are 100% correct;
  • The Seller owns the property and is capable of selling it;
  • The Seller and Purchaser have the contractual capacity to sell and buy;
  • The transaction is allowable in all respects.

WHAT YOUR ATTORNEY DOESN'T KNOW, CAN HURT YOU!!!

  • A Conveyancer is an attorney who specializes in all matters related to property law and who has:
  • Qualified as an attorney after passing the necessary exams:
  • Passed the necessary further conveyancing exam set by the Law Society;
  • Been admitted as a conveyancer by the High Court of South Africa.
  • Not all attorneys are qualified as conveyancers and only qualified conveyancers may register property transactions in the Deeds Office.

ASK YOURSELF THIS QUESTION:

Would you consult a GP if you needed a cardiologist?  Similarly, only a conveyancer has the necessary expertise in all aspects of the property law. Using an attorney instead of a conveyancer may lead to bungled and late transfers which can cost you dearly in terms of:

  • Interest continuing to run on the outstanding mortgage;
  • Increased municipal rates and taxes;
  • Risk that the bank withdraws the purchaser's bond approval;
  • Complications with occupation/possession and the risks involved therein.

Make sure that you appoint a professional conveyancer to take care of your biggest investment.
