It is with gratitude that we received the news that the Deeds Office will reopen on 4 May 2020.

However, we do expect delays with the lodgment of matters due to the various city councils not operating at full capacity as yet, especially with regards to the issue of rates clearance figures and clearance certificates.

Our conveyancing department is anxious to prepare our matters for lodgment and will endeavor to expedite all matters for registration to the best of our ability.

We will make contact with you to arrange signing of documents, as all signing of documents will be strictly by appointment only.
Your safety is our priority, we will follow strict sanitizing and social distancing regulations and keep our clients informed as to the restrictions regarding movement.

In the meantime we will keep all our clients up to date on the progress of their matters.
