The transfer of the ownership of a property, like a house, is known as the conveyancing process. The registration of the transfer of the ownership from one entity or person to another is registered the Deeds Office.
The Seller of a property has the right to appoint and instruct the conveyancer or the transferring attorney to attend to the process of registering the transfer of the ownership of the immovable property in the Deeds Office. The Seller and Purchaser can however agree that the Purchaser can make this appointment. There are usually three attorneys involved in the transfer process, namely the transferring attorney, the bond cancellation attorney (to cancel the Seller’s Bond) and the bond registration attorney (to register the Purchaser’s bond).
