A property attorney is properly called a conveyancer and is considered a specialist in the field of property law. An attorney must write additional exams and be attested by members of the High Court of South Africa to practice as a property attorney/conveyancer. A property attorney normally deals with the registration and transfer of ownership of a property or land. Unless you work in a property field such as real estate, property bonds or property development, for instance, you will not deal with a property lawyer often. The transfer of ownership is an intricate practise and can take a lengthy period of time to complete. This can involve over fifty activities in which the property attorney is involved during the process. It is the property attorney’s responsibility to keep his client informed during the process and progress of the transfer of ownership contract. Consult a property attorney for any property ownership transfers, and have your transaction taken care of with absolute professionalism.
