What is conveyancing?

When you decide to sell your property you need an Offer to Purchase (find our downloadable Offer to Purchase above). Both the Seller and the Purchaser are required to sign this document in terms of our law. This is the contract between the Seller and Purchaser which will form the basis of sale of the property.

An attorney is appointed in the Offer to Purchase, who will ensure that the Purchaser complies with all of the formalities. The attorney will also guide the Seller to ensure that the Seller complies with the formalities which are required. The attorney will ensure that the purchase price for the property is secured from the Purchaser before the transfer of ownership can take place. Upon the payment of the purchase price and compliance with certain formalities, the transfer of ownership is registered in the Deeds Office. The attorney co-ordinates the entire process while safe-guarding the Seller's interests.

Be cautious when using your estate agent's preferred attorney

If you give your estate agent the discretion to appoint the attorney, the agent will appoint an attorney with whom they have a standing relationship. The danger with this arrangement lies in the fact that the attorney is extremely loyal to the agent since the agent is a source of work for that attorney. This creates an ethical dilemma for the attorney in this position, since the attorney may be more inclined to look out for the interests of the agent before looking after their client's (the Seller) interests. The attorney may not wish to point out errors made by the agent, in an effort to protect their source of work. In a dispute, the attorney will often withdraw as your attorney rather than act against the agent, which is entirely unhelpful to the Seller.

The Seller should exercise his/her independent right to appoint the attorney, to be assured of the fact that their legal interests are safe guarded.
