Our Property & Conveyancing Services Include


In South Africa law, and specifically in respect of property, conveyancing is the transfer of legal title of property from one person to another.

A typical conveyancing transaction will take place between 2 or more participants (buyers and sellers) and an Offer to Purchase (or “OTP”) is signed by the parties.

Properties can be bought and sold by individuals, companies and trusts, both South African and foreign.

The South Africa system of conveyancing is particularly stringent and can be a lengthy process to complete. It is designed to ensure that the buyer secures title to the land and such title is correctly recorded as public record.

An attorney, and specifically, a conveyancer, is required to lawfully transfer immovable property in South Africa.

Transferring attorney’s costs are payable by the purchaser and calculated in terms of a tariff; the costs payable depend on the purchase price of the property in questions.
