19 Jun


The Cape Town High Court has today, 19 June 2020, ordered that the Cape Town Deeds Office must continue with full operations. The Order is subject to protocols being implemented to curb the spread of COVID-19.

The Court went on to deal with the backlog that has built up during the hard lockdown and the subsequent period of interrupted service. The Minister and the Registrar of Deeds must now develop a plan to deal with the backlog which must be published within 5 days.

We are extremely pleased that the matter has been dealt with so expeditiously and we look forward to the Deeds Office returning to normal operations in the not too distant future.

At Miltons Matsemela we are proud to have been part of this initiative, and we will continue to do what we can to support the industry and our partners in property.

Warm regards

Miltons Matsemela.
