Going to contract

Once the offer has been accepted, you will enter the transfer stage. Typically this stage will take 3 months from signature. Your attorney will exercise “due diligence” by asking for certain key documents from you, the seller and the relevant authorities. These typically include:
  • Copies of identity documents of all concerned
  • Proof of marital status
  • Original title deed
  • Transfer duty receipt from SARS
  • Rates clearance certificate
  • Tax clearance certificates from SARS
  • Proof of residence
  • Bond account details from the seller
  • Bond approval from the buyer
  • The deposit is usually held in the conveyancing attorney’s trust account until the transfer date. Normally, any interest earned accrues to the purchaser.

Cost for buyers

  • Conveyancing fees
  • Bond Registration fees
  • Post & petties to the conveyance
  • Deeds office fees
  • Pro rata rates
  • Occupational rent if applicable
  • Costs of move i.e. furniture
  • Curtaining: if curtains were not included in the selling price
  • Bond approval from the buyer
  • Transfer of telephone, internet services, etc.
NOTE: When purchasing in a new development from a developer, the sale will typically include VAT and if so there will be no transfer duty payable.
