The Practitioners' Guide to Conveyancing and Notarial Practice by Allen West is the only comprehensive and up to date treatise on the practice and procedure governing the registration of deeds and documents at the Deeds Registry.
The Practitioner's Guide to Conveyancing and Notarial Practice covers the important aspects of conveyancing and notarial practice.
In view of the provisions of the Deeds Registries Act 47 of 1937, which places a duty on the Registrar to apply the directives issued by the Chief Registrar of Deeds, this publication is an invaluable and authoritative source when drafting deeds and documents.
The author provides a comprehensive exposition of how to describe parties in deeds and documents, as well as an explanation on how to draft extending clauses and causa for estate transfers in addition to other types of transactions. The chapter on estate transfers is an invaluable guide as it covers each type of estate transaction, providing a comprehensive set of documents that need to be lodged with a specific estate transfer. The author provides examples of how the causa must be drafted with a list of the supporting documents that need to be lodged for estates administrated in terms of the Black Administration Act 38 of 1927. The publication includes a chapter on customary marriages which will assist practitioners who have to advise on their clients' marital status.
The Practitioner's Guide to Conveyancing and Notarial Practice also covers Conference Resolutions, SPLUMA, the Sectional Titles Management Act and the latest Chief Registrars Circulars.
This publication is a must for all conveyancers, estate agents, paralegals, conveyancing typists as well as candidates who anticipate writing the conveyancing or notarial admittance examinations.
