CONVEYANCING

Our firm has a very large Conveyancing Department in which four of our Attorneys are employed as Conveyancers and dedicated, inter alia, to property development. The firm is, on an on-going basis, involved in many large property developments from inception through to finalisation which includes strategic planning, assistance with regard to applications for rezoning etc, negotiating with financial institutions, drafting appropriate agreements, negotiating and working with other professionals on the projects, drafting Constitutions and where necessary, attending to the Conveyancing which more often than not only includes the transfer but also the Bonds.

Our large conveyancing department under day-to-day supervision of 4 conveyancers is dedicated to property development and participates on an ongoing basis with many property developments from inception to finalisation which includes strategic planning, assistance with applications for rezoning, negotiating with financial institutions, drafting of constitutions and appropriate agreements. We therefore offer a full spectrum of property transactions. Our office also deals with all aspects of commercial transactions and rentals.

We also represent the 4 major banks (viz. Absa Bank, First National Bank, Nedbank, and Standard Bank) in our dond department and attend to registration of homeloans, notarial bonds, covering bonds and private bonds. Our bond department covers not only the Helderberg basin and Cape Town Metropolitan area but also areas further afield. Our bond department operates under 3 capable conveyancers.

All registered transactions are also handled on a personal and daily basis in Cape Town by one of our conveyancers.

BOND DEPARTMENT

Henk van Rensburg is in charge of the Bond department.

We represent the 4 major Banks viz. Absa Bank, First National Bank, Nedbank and Standard Bank in our Bond department and attend to the registration of homeloans, notarial bonds, covering bonds and private bonds. Our Bond department covers not only the Helderberg basin and Cape Town Metropolitan area, but also the outlying areas of the Western Cape, inclusive of the Boland such as Stellenbosch, Grabouw, Caledon stretching as far as Bredarsdorp.

It is our policy to attend personally to the registration of our Bonds in the Deeds Office in Cape Town and we do not use Cape Town correspondents.

Our Bond Department, as also our Conveyancing Department and in fact the whole practice, is technologically progressive and certainly more than complies with the standards of the various financial institutions.
