One does not know what the future entails and should you sell your property in the future it is recommended to keep the following documentation in a file for such an event.

  • Your title deed from the conveyancer - if your property is bonded, the bank will keep the original and a copy should be sent to you by the conveyancer.
  • The signed agreement of sale and annexures and the conveyancer’s final statement of account.
  • The compliance certificates that were issued when you bought the property.
  • Any plans, certifications or guarantees for workmanship.
