The Department of Agriculture, Land Reform and Rural Development would like to announce the opening of deeds offices across the country on 13 May 2020.
All services will be available and all lodgements will be accepted. The members of the public and clerks will however not be allowed in the buildings. Only conveyancers will be allowed to enter the buildings and in big offices, however, their consultations will be controlled through appointments.
The Office of the Chief Registrar will load all notices for applications for copies of lost deeds on DeedsWeb for public inspection. Information will be available for the public on DeedsWeb and via emails.
The Chief Registrar of Deeds has issued a notice that no Deeds Trading account debt will incur any interest during the lockdown.
Level four lockdown regulations require that the department puts in place the necessary health measures to ensure the smooth running of the offices.
For media enquiries, please contact the Media Liaison Officer, Mr Reggie Ngcobo, on 082 883 2458.
