PROTEA IS STILL UNLOCKING PROPERTY VALUE DURING THE LOCKDOWN PERIOD

PUBLISHED 1 MAY 2020   

You will be pleased to know that with our trusted assistance and the digital world we live in, it is still possible to buy a new property from the comfort of your home.

Even though physical house hunting is not currently possible, shopping for property online most certainly is. And with the Deeds Office an professional services, including attorneys and accountants opening and functioning again from 1 May 2020, it is possible for us to make it all happen. If you already have a property in mind, or if you find one online during this time, all you need to do is contact us and we will guide you through the A to Z of the digital property transaction process, which will include the following key steps:

Preparing the Agreement of Sale for electronic signing by both buyer and seller - the buyer will be protected by inserting a condition in the Offer to Purchase that the transfer will only go ahead once the home has passed a physical inspection, which will be conducted once the lockdown regulations allow for that.

Assisting you with your online application for a home loan at multiple banks in order to ensure that you obtain the best interest rate. The banks are able to process your home loan application all the way to the final quotation, provided they can do a desktop valuation. If they have to do a physical valuation, they will be able to offer a final quotation subject to the physical valuation.

Together with the transferring and bond attorneys, we will assist you throughout the digital transfer process.

Other services that we offer include:

Pre-qualification – we have a panel of experts who can assist you with a financial pre-qualification - this will provide you with your credit status and enable you to determine what you can afford, along with the size of the home loan you would likely qualify for.
