What is a Title Deed and why is it so important?

The owner of Immovable Property is the person in whose name the property is registered in terms of the Deeds Registries Act 47 of 1937. A Title Deed is the owner of immovable property’s documentary proof of ownership. Each privately owned property has its own separate Title Deed, which is an important document containing all the details pertaining to a specific piece of land.

The owner of Immovable Property is the person in whose name the property is registered in terms of the Deeds Registries Act 47 of 1937. A Title Deed is the owner of immovable property’s documentary proof of ownership. Each privately owned property has its own separate Title Deed, which is an important document containing all the details pertaining to a specific piece of land.

These details are:


The name of the existing owner as well as the previous owner.
A full description of the property, including its measured size.
The purchase price of the property paid by the existing owner.
All conditions restricting the use or the sale of the property.
All limited real rights registered in respect of the property and what their nature is.


These details not only restrict an owner, but they also affect the value of the property. In certain instances they protect the owner where, for example, you may not build over a certain building line on your property’s boundary wall, so as to create space between neighbours. Another example is that the property in front of yours may not block your ocean view with buildings higher than 2 storeys.

The owner of immovable property will normally have the Title Deed of his property in his possession, usually in the form of a Deed of Transfer, if the property is fully paid for. However, the Deed of Transfer may be in the possession of the bank, which holds a Mortgage Bond over the property.

What are The Deeds Office and The Deeds Registry?
There are numerous Deeds Offices throughout South Africa. Each Deeds Office holds a Deeds Registry, containing filed Title Deeds of all the properties in its particular jurisdiction. All the Deeds Registries are linked to a computer network. Your estate agent can, via a computer-linked facility from his office, examine any Title Deed (registered from 1980) in the country’s combined Deeds Registry.

    It was really a memorable and remarkable trip to bandhavgarh. Bandhavgarh is my favorite tiger reserve. I often visit this place with my family and friends. I feel relaxed and thrilled when I see different wild animals here, especially when I see tigers and leopards. My current visit is about to finish today. Definitely, I will come back again!

    I think that everything published made a bunch of sense.

    However, think about this, what if you typed a catchier post title?
    I ain’t saying your information isn’t good,
    but suppose you added a title that makes people desire more?
    I mean What is a Title Deed and why is it so important?
    – ZAkasi is a little plain. You might peek at Yahoo’s front page and see
    how they create post headlines to get people to click.
    You might add a related video or a pic or two to get readers excited
    about everything’ve written. In my opinion, it might bring
    your posts a little bit more interesting.
