What is "conveyancing"?
What does your job entail?
I administer the transactions and ensure that all parties meet their obligations timeously. These include the payment of deposits by the seller, investment of deposits by the conveyancing attorney's staff, and the payment of rates and transfer duties to the relevant authorities.
I work with the conveyancing attorneys, who specialise in property matters, and have passed a comprehensive exam in conveyancing. They are bound by the rules of the Law Society of the Cape of Good Hope and must be in possession of a valid Fidelity Fund certificate which will protect your money when it is held in trust.
There are 77 steps in the transfer of each property. I draw up a timeline to ensure that every transaction takes place at the right time to ensure that the process is not held up. To facilitate this, I arrange appointments for the signing of documents, ensuring the efficient conclusion of any conveyancing matter.
Average day at the office:
I also arrange the signature of all transfer documents. Some clients are unable to attend to their affairs during normal office hours, so meetings frequently take place early in the morning or late in the evening.
I'm also available to respond to queries at all hours from clients and estate agents.
