Conyenancing

CONVEYANCING

We provide comprehensive conveyancing solutions to ensure the smooth transition of ownership.

 

We will happily review your offer to purchase and provide you with advice prior to making an offer. We are also able to draft an offer to purchase that suits your purchase.

 

We register transfers of property in the Deeds Office and attend to all ancillary services.

ANTE-NUPTIAL CONTRACTS, CIVIL UNION AGREEMENTS, AND LIFE PARTNERSHIP AGREEMENTS

Our ante-nuptial consultation will provide you with a detailed understanding of the marital property regimes in South Africa, as well as advice on how best to structure your property on your marriage/civil union.

 

Ante-nuptial agreements must be signed with a notary public before the date of the wedding or civil union. Schedule your appointment before you decide on the dress!

NOTARIAL BONDS AND OTHER DEEDS

We have a qualified notary and can assist in the drafting of notarial agreements, civil union contracts, co-habitation agreements, notarial servitudes, and notarial bonds, as well as authentication of documents required by institutions abroad who generally no longer accept certification by commissioner of oaths.

 

Are you providing finance or credit? Let’s discuss how a notarial bond can provide you with a very strong form of security in terms of South African law.

NOTARIAL AUTHENTICATIONS

What is notarial authentication and when do you need it?

 

In South Africa, not all attorneys are notaries. To practice as a notary, an attorney must pass an additional examination and be admitted by the high court as a notary.

 

As Notaries, we are authorised to authenticate documents or signatures on documents for the use of the documents in countries outside South Africa. Often the notary’s signature must further be confirmed by the high court by endorsing the documentation with an apostille. The authority of notaries in South Africa is recognised and accepted worldwide.

 

We will advise on all the requirements so contact us for advice.

WILLS AND ESTATE PLANNING

We provide estate planning services to ensure that the wealth you create is the wealth you grow and pass on.

CORRESPONDENT SERVICES

Situated close to the Deeds Office and within the jurisdiction of both the Cape Town Magistrates and High Court, we will happily assist in a correspondent capacity.

 

We can act purely as a lodgement agent but are also able to assist with preparation of deeds and ancillary documents.

 

Our qualified conveyancer can also attend to execution on your behalf.
