NEWSFLASH….
It appears that the Cape Town Deeds Office are now, once again, receiving documents for Lodgement!!

19 May 2020
NO LODGMENTS AT CAPE TOWN DEEDS OFFICE

The Cape Town Deeds Office advised today that they will, for the time being, not accept new lodgments. They have explained to us that this was necessitated because of the low numbers of staff at their offices. Staff who have been instructed to return to work have not yet reported to work in sufficient numbers.  There simply are not enough staff members at work  to attend to the deeds that were lodged since last week’s opening and they will process these for uptake into their system first, before accepting further new lodgments.

We hope that staff will return to work as they should and will keep you updated and advise as soon as this position changes.

On the bright side, some of the deeds we lodged last week are already up for registration.

For assistance, contact us by email at info@stbb.co.za.
