Conveyencing And Notarial Practices

Why Attend

Ownership of immovable property is not obtained on the signature of the offer to purchase documents or even on payment of the purchase price. Ownership is only obtained on registration of the property, into the buyer’s name, in the Deeds Registry Office.

Conveyancing is the legal process that takes place when lawful ownership is obtained of immovable property. Each time a property is sold; a new deed of transfer must be drawn up and registered. This is to ensure the security and certainty of an owner’s title to his property.

The main aim of this training is to give attorneys a practical background in the law, practice, and procedure of conveying and notarial practices.
