The Minister of Agriculture, Land Reform and Rural Development, Ms Thoko Didiza, has intervened to address the challenges of backlogs in all deeds offices. Here are the measures that will be put in place:

  1. Examiners will be able to examine documents at home;
  2. The restriction of having only 30% of staff at the deeds office will be done away with;
  3. Offices will be re-arranged (again) to ensure social distancing and safety;
  4. IT systems are to be upgraded and staff will be equipped to work from home;
  5. Decontamination will be done only in affected areas and the offices will only be closed in extreme circumstances.

We sincerely hope that these measures will go some way to enabling us to get our registrations done within reasonable time periods, and we will keep you advised of developments.

Warmest regards
