Conventional Sale

A conventional sale of immovable property generally results in payment of the purchase price in full, upon registration of transfer at the Deeds Office, which process takes approx. 2 to 3 months.

Deed of Sale
  • The Alienation of Land Act 1981 established a legal basis in terms whereof residential property may be sold for payment in more than 2 instalments over a period of longer than 1 year, irrespective of whether the property is subject to a mortgage bond or not.
  • This transaction is a called a Sale of Land on Instalments
  • Whilst sellers may generally prefer a conventional sale, there exist compelling reasons to consider a Sale of Land on Instalments as an alternative:
  • If the seller is in some financial difficulty or distress,
  • If the seller is prepared to accept payment in instalments,
  • If the purchaser can afford to pay instalments but does not qualify for a mortgage loan,
  • If the purchaser does not presently have funds to pay transfer and bond costs but expects to have such funds in the future,
  • If the relationship between the seller and purchaser lends itself to a Sale of Land on Instalments.
  • Pursuant to a divorce, enabling the remaining spouse to remain in the property.
  • The Alienation of Land Act provides for the extensive protection of the rights of the seller, purchaser and any mortgagee. The Sale of Land on Instalments is a pre cursor to the eventual formal transfer of the property into the name of the purchaser.
  • Primarily, a Sale of Land on Instalments is affordable in that minimal costs are payable initially, transfer duty is payable within 6 months and the bulk of transfer costs are payable upon the eventual registration of the property into the name of the purchaser, whilst occupation of the property can be given immediately.
  • The Seller may need to register as a credit provider at a nominal cost.

Crafford Inc have created a comprehensive agreement for the Sale of Land on Instalments and have developed a system to administer the entire process, including the registration of the Seller as a credit provider.
