Product description

Your authoritative and practical partner for uniform conveyancing in South Africa, with added insights on customary marriages and exam preparation.

The Practitioner's Guide to Conveyancing and Notarial Practice, now in its brand new 3rd Edition authored by Allen West, aims to create uniformity in conveyancing practices in South Africa, as required by the Deeds Registries Act. The book provides practical guidance to practitioners and students on important day-to-day conveyancing topics, substantiated by authoritative sources like case law and conference resolutions. It comprises two sections - the first covering core conveyancing issues, and the second containing key Chief Registrar's Circulars and an index of all circulars since 1949. It provides invaluable insights on drafting extending clauses and causa for estate transfers and other transactions.

As an added bonus, practitioners can rely on the chapter covering customary marriages to navigate their clients' marital status enquiries.

The book also includes an exam preparation guide to help candidates apply the syllabus to real-world conveyancing. This has proved to be extremely useful to our customers who have purchased previous editions of the book over the years.

Available in print, eBook and online format. Online format can only be purchased as part of a Lexis+ base package Visit for more information.
