I want to sell my land. What should I do?

  • Introduction: Our platform focuses on specific administrative/legal needs of people concerning the sale and purchase of a piece of land.
  • Why is the process needed: A leasehold estate is an estate for a fixed term of years.

The benefit of this process is that the Vendor will receive payments in respect to the Purchase Price of the Land and on the other hand, the Purchaser will be officially registered as the owner of the land in question.

  • Risk/what happens if the process is not undertaken: If the process of the sale and purchase of a piece of land is not finalized then the buyer will not obtain legal title to the land and the Vendor will not obtain the purchase price.
