Support Services for Property Developers
We render specialised services to Property Developers assisting them in the development process from the moment of acquiring land to concluding various agreements, conveyancing and even litigation where necessary. Our Developer Solutions include:
- Establishing Townships
- Opening Sectional Title Registers
- Notarial Cessions and Ties
- Consolidation and Subdivision of Land
- Joint Venture Agreements
- Construction Contracts & Sub-Contracts
We are experienced in drafting and vetting a wide range of Commercial Contracts which Developers typically enter into in the process of a Development. Contracts such as Joint Venture agreements, Constructions Contracts (whether JBCC or otherwise) and Service Level Agreements with Architects, Engineers, Quantity Surveyors or Estate Agents. Ensuring that the correct documentation is in place from the start could mean the difference between a profitable development or a failed development.
Our Development team consists of seperate attorneys and conveyancers, supported by paralegals and candidate attoreneys to ensure that the project is dealt with efficiently and with a wide range of knowledge.
As we do not act for any banks, you are assured of our independent professional advice. We have a relationship with a firm of attorneys who do serve on the bond panels for five of SA’s large mortgagors. All bond registrations are referred to them with a pre-agreed reduced fee, which is passed on to the developer.
If you are looking to start a development contact us for a free meeting to discuss your needs and to explore our services. We offer highly competitive prices on the conveyancing work and would gladly discuss this with you.
