Property Law


Property Law is the area of law that governs the various forms of ownership in property, for example: fixed property such as a house or building.

The most common way of acquiring a real right of ownership infixed property is through the registration of transfer in the Deeds Office which occurs pursuant to the conclusion of a deed of sale entered into between a seller and a purchaser.

Conveyancers are appointed by the seller to attend to the transfer of the fixed property, and the registration of the deed of transfer at the Deeds Office. The Conveyancer will also deal with transfer duties, VAT payable, payment of the bond registration costs, estate agent's commission, the payment of the purchase price, etc.
