Q What is the bond registration fee?

These are the fees that the Conveyancers charge the Purchaser as per the recommended fees of the Legal Practice Council for the service of registering a bond at the deeds office. These fees are paid to the Conveyancer before registration by the Purchaser.

Q Will my bond be cancelled automatically if I settle the amount in full?

No, the bond still needs to be cancelled at the deeds office and a fee will thus be payable to the Conveyancer attending to the cancellation of the bond in the deeds office.

Q Upon approval for a loan by the bank, may I appoint any Conveyancer to register my bond?

No. The bank has a panel of Conveyancers who are authorized to register bonds.

Q Will I get my title deed after registration?

If you have purchased the property in cash, you will then be given your original title deed. In cases where you took out a loan from a financial institution then, the original title deed will be sent to the financial institution for safekeeping to serve as security for the loan.

Q Who has to pay the Transfer costs in a property transaction?

The Purchaser pays the transfer costs to the Conveyancer, this amount includes the transfer duty (in cases where it is payable).

Q How long does a transfer of property take to register?

A transfer takes approximately 8 weeks to register. The time frame depends largely on the time periods set in the Offer to Purchase, participation of the Purchaser and seller as well as other incidental factors.
