It is customary for the Seller to appoint the conveyancer who will be calling on the Purchaser to pay or secure the purchase price and the costs.
If an offer to purchase stipulates a specific conveyancer which is not acceptable to the Seller, the Seller can, as with any other conditions
the Seller is not happy with, make a counter offer and should the Purchaser not accept the counter offer, no agreement is reached.
We recommend that you insist on utilising the conveyancer of your choice and that you ensure that the conveyancer has the necessary
experience and expertise to fulfil their mandate. Even if the conveyancer is appointed by the Seller, the conveyancer remains an independent
party whose obligation it is to give effect to the sale agreement rather than favour the interests of one party over the other.
We, at Peacock, Liebenberg & Dickinson Inc. have the experience and expertise to assist you in negotiating an agreement on terms that protect your
interests and thereafter to effect a speedy registration of transfer in the Deed's office.
