The word conveyancing is used to describe the administrative and legal procedures necessary to transfer ownership (and other rights) in immovable property from one person to another.
Our land registration system is generally acknowledged to be one of the best developed and most accurate systems in the world. Because of the sophisticated nature of the system, however, it is extremely complex, and only a select group of practitioners are permitted to attend to matters of this nature.
This system is dependent on the integrity and the correct performance of the functions of conveyancers and the staff of deeds registries.
Section 15A(I) of the Deeds Registries Act provides that certain deeds and documents must be prepared and signed by a conveyancer who accepts responsibility for the correctness and accuracy of certain facts set out in such deeds or documents.
Conveyancers must also have proper knowledge of a number of pieces of legislation governing land registration as well as the common law, conference resolutions dating back as far as 1938, and all relevant Chief Registrar’s Circulars.
For most people, owning property will be their largest and most important investment. It stands to reason that you would need an expert in the field to guide you through the process.
