To quote from the linked document below:
If the property of a minor is alienated or a mortgage bond is to be registered over the minor's property, then:
- All guardians would need to consent. Consent by one guardian alone is not sufficient. Vide Sections 18(3)(c)(v) and 18(5) of the Children's Act. (The one exception is where a Court has ordered otherwise.);
- In addition to the consent of all the guardians, the Master would also need to consent if the value of the property or the bond is less than R100,000.00. If the value of the property or the amount of the bond is more than R100,000.00, then the High Court would need to consent. Section 80 of the Administration of Estates Act 66 of 1965.
