Conveyancing and Property Law

Conveyancing and Property Law

Conveyancing is the legal term for the process whereby a person, company or trust becomes the registered and legal owner of immovable property and insures that his ownership cannot be challenged.

Conveyancing in South Africa is professionally done by a registered Conveyancer. It is a specialized area of the law and the perception that a few forms are simply completed and submitted to the Deeds Office is far from the truth. The Conveyancers at Fivaz Incorporated thoroughly screen your transaction and registration to ensure that ownership is properly vested, where you might have to defend your property rights in a court of law.

Our legal services include:

  • Negotiating and drafting agreements relating to the sale of residential and commercial properties;
  • Advising on and drafting of commercial and residential leases;
  • Commercial and residential developments, including township establishment and sectional title developments;
  • Conventional transfers of properties, as well as transfers as a result of or in terms of liquidations, auctions, court orders, foreclosures, divorces, donations, deceased estates and insolvent estates;
  • Financial structuring of property transactions;
  • Miscellaneous applications, consents and endorsements required in the conveyancing process;
  • Registration and cancellation of all types of bonds, including mortgage-, surety-, collateral- and notarial bonds;
