TIPS TO PREVENT DELAYS IN SELLING YOUR HOME

  • Pay all rates and service charges on the property to ensure that your account is up to date. A rates clearance certificate will not be issued by the municipality if there are unpaid arrears.
  • Keep the original title deed available. If there is a bond over the property, the title deed will be held by the bank.
  • Keep all bond payments up to date, if there is a bond over the property.
  • If the property is in a sectional title unit, ensure that all levies are up to date and that all outstanding requirements of the body corporate have been met. The body corporate may need to consent to the sale and will withhold its consent if there are any outstanding payments or other matters.
