Experts in residential and commercial conveyancing transactions
At Bert Smith Inc. we deliver specialist conveyancing services to our extended national and international client base. We have the expertise to advise on all conveyancing related issues.
We handle transfer of properties from seller to buyer. We register bonds and partner with buyers and banks to facilitate the granting of home loans. We also work with banks on cancellation of sellers’ home loans or cancelling seller’s bonds.
The conveyancing process involves ensuring that you, as a buyer, get your new property registered in your name at the Deeds Registry Office, in other words, that you obtain secure title to your property.
We assist with the transfer of both residential and commercial properties, as well as freehold and sectional title developments. Our expert attorneys are always available to consult on these matters and assist with drafting the necessary agreements.
