Closing dates

The various Deeds Offices have recently communicated their formal closing dates for 2018, as well as their year-end arrangements for registration of transactions. This should lead to an increase in lodgements over the next two weeks, which will have an impact on the turn-around times.

The Chief Registrar of Deeds issued year-end deeds office details for the various registries nationally. These are that the registries will close on 21 December 2018. The last day for lodgments and registrations is 20 December. All the registries will open on 2 January 2019, for business as usual.

In some registries however, alternative arrangements have been made. Due to the internal differences in other offices, check with your conveyancer in your region.
