Property Transfers / Conveyancing

Managed By: Mariska Nowak

Whether it’s your first home or a commercial office building, buying real estate is always an expensive investment, which could make it a stressful process, particularly if you are purchasing a fixed property for the first time. Many laypeople have no idea about property transfer costs, requirements, regulations, etc. So, if you are currently in the process of acquiring real estate, utilising the services and expertise of reputable conveyancing attorneys, such as the team at EGA, will be invaluable.

Property law is a core area of our practice and encompasses a full range of conveyancing services for individuals and commercial clients, including deceased estate property transfers, transfers in terms of the Alienation of Land Act, subdivision and consolidation of properties, dealing with restrictive title conditions and servitudes, structuring of assets, due diligence for acquisitions of commercial and industrial properties, land purchase negotiations and the drafting of all property related agreements. Letting us review the agreement or conduct the negotiations can save you in time and money in the long run.

For example:

  • If the agreement of sale does not adequately or fairly represent your interests in the transaction, we’ll tell you.
  • If there are implied terms in the agreement or onerous conditions in the title deed that you might not even be aware of, we’ll tell you.

However, there is no sense in us telling you about these things after the fact. So, rather reach out to us before you put pen to paper and allow us to make sure that you get exactly what you bargained for.
