immovabe property

  •  gas compliance certificate

    Both sellers and Estate Agents should be made aware of this legal requirement.

    Last week we received this inquiry.

     “I am in the process of selling my house. I have a permanent gas oven in the house and the transferring attorney is now telling me that I need to get a gas compliance certificate for my gas oven. Is this necessary, and should the buyer not be responsible for this and the cost involved in getting one?”

    Sellers contemplating an instalment sale agreement containing interest charges should take careful note of the steps to be taken before concluding the sale agreement

    The National Credit Act No 34 of 2005 has some wide-ranging applicability on immovable property instalment sale agreements.

    Here is a case study to illustrate and understand the implications of The National Credit Act  based on an inquiry our office received this last week :

    “I own a property in Muizenberg, Cape Town. A buyer is interested in buying my flat. Her bank is not prepared to give her a loan because she is paying off a few personal loans, but she is prepared to enter into an instalment sale agreement to pay the purchase price in instalments over a period of time, much like a rental. I like the idea of at least getting a monthly income, but I am worried whether I can do this and charge interest on the instalments, particularly as it will take a few years for her to pay the price in full?”
