Understanding the Role of a Conveyancer: A Guide by Roberts Inc.

Are you planning to buy or sell a property in South Africa? If so, you might have come across the term “conveyancer.” But what does it mean, and why is it important to involve one in your property transaction?


At Roberts Inc., we understand that navigating the legal aspects of property transactions can be overwhelming. That’s why we’ve put together this guide to help you understand the role of a conveyancer and how they can assist you in your property dealings.


What is a Conveyancer?

A conveyancer is a legal professional who specializes in property law. They are responsible for ensuring that the transfer of ownership of a property is legally binding and that all parties involved in the transaction are protected.


In South Africa, conveyancers are regulated by the Attorneys Act and must be admitted as attorneys before they can practice as conveyancers. This means that they have undergone extensive training and are held to high ethical standards.


What Does a Conveyancer Do?

A conveyancer’s primary role is to facilitate the transfer of ownership of a property from one party to another. They do this by:


  • Conducting title searches to ensure that the seller has the right to sell the property


  • Drafting and reviewing sale agreements


  • Registering the transfer of ownership with the Deeds Office


  • Facilitating payment of transfer duties and other fees


  • Ensuring that all legal requirements are met


By involving a conveyancer in your property transaction, you can rest assured that all legal aspects are taken care of, giving you peace of mind throughout the process.
