When you buy any immoveable property, the ownership of the property must be transferred from the existing owner to the new purchaser. Conveyancing is the term used to describe the transfer of ownership.
In many transactions, real estate agents rely on standard forms of contract which may be challenged if ambiguous or if a party is in breach of the contract. To avoid doubt or confusion, a lawyer should draw up a deed of sale to clearly describe the contents and condition of the property, and the terms of the sale agreement.
These contracts must be recorded in writing, preferably by attorneys who specialise in conveyancing and property law. As specialists in conveyancing and property law, we can help you to draft contracts specifically tailored to the particular circumstances of the sale and the property in question.
Taking this approach will eliminate any doubt, prevent unnecessary and time consuming disputes and ensure that all parties in the transaction clearly understand the conditions of the sale agreement.
