CONVEYANCING & PROPERTY LAW
Property law is that area of the law dealing with the right of use, control, and disposition which one may lawfully exercise over things, objects, or land.
Immovable or fixed property includes land and things which are permanently attached to the land.
Our conveyancers specialize in the transfer of fixed property ownership. Their main role is to help clients navigate the complex legal process of buying or selling property, ensuring that all legal requirements are met and that the transaction is completed in a timely and efficient manner.
They are required to be admitted as attorneys and to have completed additional training in conveyancing law. They are responsible for a wide range of tasks, including reviewing sale agreements, conducting property searches, drafting, and registering deeds and other legal documents, and handling the payment of transfer fees and taxes.
They work closely with other professionals involved in the property transfer process, such as estate agents, mortgage lenders, and surveyors, to ensure a smooth and successful transaction. They also provide legal advice and guidance to clients throughout the process, ensuring that their interests are protected at all times.

Cars, bank accounts, wages, a small business, furniture, insurance policies, jewellery, patents, pets, and season rugby tickets are all examples of personal property. Personal property may also be called personal effects or movable property.
Property law is an important legal arrangement that protects individuals or legal entities that own personal or fixed property. It deals with the right to purchase, use, and control their personal and immovable property. It also obliges one neighbour to respect the rights of his surrounding neighbours and not subject them to nuisance like loud noise.
