We recently updated you on the present delays at the City of Cape Town municipality for the issuing of rates clearance certificates. As these certificates are compulsory for effecting registration of transfer of property ownership, it impacts on estimated turnaround times for finalisation of your transaction.
Attached is a notification from the City of Cape Town in this regard, for your further information. We are still continuously monitoring the situation and engaging with the municipality, and you are welcome to contact your conveyancer should you have any questions.
