Advisory from the Law Society of South Africa
Practitioners have previously been advised of a proposed business model by Proxi Smart Services (Pty) Limited (Proxi Smart) to render certain conveyancing-related services which are presently performed by conveyancers – who are regulated by the statutory, provincial law societies.
The view of the Law Society of South Africa (LSSA) and the provincial law societies, is that the proposal by Proxi Smart cannot be supported as the full conveyancing process is regarded as reserved work, and should remain so in the interest of the public.
Proxi Smart has been informed accordingly.
