Conveyancing Real Estate
The department of conveyancing and real estate development is one of the largest departments of its kind in South Africa.
Conveyancing is the legal term for the process whereby a person, company, close corporation or trust becomes the registered and legal owner of immovable property and ensures that this ownership cannot be challenged. It also covers the process of the registration of mortgages and other rights.
