What do I have to consider when buying a property in South Africa?

Once you have found and viewed your dream property, a preliminary contract is drawn up. After that, you pay a 10% deposit, which means you have bought! Now the property is checked by a notary or lawyer to see if everything is registered in the land register, all bills (wages, electricity, water, taxes etc.) are paid. If this is the case, then the notary contract is signed within 30 days and you then pay the remaining sum. After that, the seller signs and the notary starts with the transfer of the property. If you do not buy after paying the deposit, it will not be refunded. If the seller sells elsewhere because he gets a better offer, then you get the 10% deposit + 10% refunded by the seller. However, this happens very rarely. In our case it has never happened. If there are any open "items" when you check the property, then the seller has to put them in order, and only then can you buy.
