Transfers of Property
When a property is sold by a Seller to a Buyer the change of ownership must be recorded in the Deeds Office. This process also includes certain statutory requirements that must be in place before registration of the Transfer can register in the Deeds Office. To this end a Conveyancing Attorney must be appointed to attend to this process of registering the change of ownership in the Deeds Office. The Conveyancing Attorney must also ensure that the rights of the parties to the Sale Agreement (Contract) is protected and that the Transfer is not registered without securing the Purchase price payable by the Purchaser. We are specialists in this process and will guide you every step of the way, from the signing of the contract until successful registration in the Deeds Office.
Registration and Cancellation of Bonds
When a home owner requires finance from a bank (a loan) to secure the purchase price of his property, the bank will register a Mortgage Bond against the property to protect the bank’s interest in the property, as the property will serve as security for the loan. In turn when that same home owner sells the property, the bank will not consent to cancel their Mortgage Bond and give up their security, unless they are guaranteed that the amount owed to the Bank will be settled before the property is transferred to the new owner.
To this end the Bank will instruct a Conveyancing Attorney to act on their behalf to assist either with the registration or the cancellation of the Mortgage Bond, as the case may be. We are on the panels of all the major banks and act daily for the banks in the registration and cancellation of Mortgage Bonds. We will assist you every step of the way and guide you through the paper work that must be signed until the successful registration or cancellation of the Mortgage Bond in the Deeds Office.
