Johannesburg Registrar's Circular 1/2008

Johannesburg Registrar's Circular No.1 of 2008 - As from the 1st of July the City of Johannesburg will be rating sectional title units separately. Therefore sectional title transfers of units lodged as of 11th of August where the date of the transaction is on or after the 1st of July will have to have their own rates clearance certificate. Because the Registrar feels this is insufficient notice, he will be temporarily relaxing the office's requirement that when the deeds are lodged they must be complete. Such deeds may be lodged on "prep" until the 29th of August and may not be rejected if that is the only relevant note. But as of 1st September all such deeds lodged must contain the relevant rates.

A point to note is that the definition of "Property" in the Municipal Property Rates Act 6 of 2004 is wide and includes "immovable property in the name of a person, excluding a mortgage bond registered against the property."
