Property Law & Conveyancing Attorneys

Greyvensteins Incorporated are Property Law & Conveyancing Attorneys.

In 1996 Greyvensteins Inc opened a branch office in Bellville, Cape Town, to provide a more efficient service to our clients as far as conveyancing matters are concerned.

The Eastern Cape Province does not have a deeds office and all property related matters in the Eastern Cape must be registered in Cape Town causing considerable delays in property transfer and mortgage registration.

We are the only Port Elizabeth Attorney firm with a Bellville office at the seat of the Deeds Registry.

Our company is also one of the biggest conveyancing law firms in the city of Port Elizabeth, and we are rapidly growing these services in Cape Town and Johannesburg.

Am I responsible for the previous owner's unpaid rates and taxes?


In a much-anticipated Constitutional Court Judgment it has been ruled that new property owners are no longer expected to take responsibility for settling municipal debt incurred by previous owners of the acquired property.

The matter stemmed from a litigious battle which challenged the constitutionality of section 118(3) of the Local Government: Municipal Systems Act.
