In view of the more than 100 resolutions taken at the 2005 and 2006 Conference of Registrars, recent case law, Chief Registrars Circulars and new legislation, it was deemed necessary to review the Practitioner's Guide to Conveyancing and Notarial Practice in toto.
Additional chapters have also been introduced to provide clarity on aspects such as the subdivision of agricultural land, amendment of errors in registration and dealings by rehabilitated insolvents with immovable property.
The chapter on estate transfers, inclusive of intestate succession of black persons, has also been reviewed and practical examples provided on how to draft the causa of estate transfers, and the supporting documents required to be lodged with a registrar of deeds.
The book is a must for all conveyancers, notaries and paralegals involved with conveyancing and deeds office practice. It really makes the life of the practitioner a great deal easier having a book containing all the relevant authority for the preparation of deeds and documents.
The complete book (first to eighth Issue) costs R625,00 (VAT incl) for attorneys and candidate attorneys, and R675,00 for non-attorneys. The eighth issue, update only, costs R140,00 (VAT incl).
The Practitioner's Guide to Conveyancing and Notarial Practice will be available by the end of January 2007.
