Property Transfer

Buying or Selling property is the biggest financial decision most of us will ever make. The law requires that any agreement regarding the sale of a property has to be reduced to writing (in a contract) and signed by the seller(s) and the buyer(s). Although many people buy a property through the services of an estate agent, who will then assist the parties with this important contract, other people purchase a property privately, without an estate agent being involved. As the contract between the parties becomes binding once the parties have all signed, it is vital that the contract makes provision for all the necessary arrangements in respect of a property transfer.

Administration of Estates

The death of a loved one is usually a time of great sadness and uncertainty. It is a time filled with lots of emotions, making many arrangements to pay honour to the deceased and having to plan for an uncertain future. Very often one of the most important steps is completely omitted or avoided intentionally. This the administration of the person’s estate.

Family Law

Currently, it is possible to get divorced in the Regional Court or High Court. Both courts have advantages and disadvantages.

The Regional Courts usually have backlogs due to the high number of divorces that have to be processed in a limited amount of court days. This delay often causes great frustration for the involved parties. If the divorce is opposed by the other party the delay could be even greater. As the travelling time to the regional courts are often shorter and it is not necessary to use an advocate to appear on your behalf, using this court may often be less expensive, but may take longer.
