    Facreton gets service upgradeTAURIQ HASSEN

    A R40 MILLION basic servic-es plan for backyarders hasbeen launched in the Facretonarea, which will see servicessuch as water, sanitation andelectricity being introduced tobackyarders.

    Backyarders welcomed theproject, which aims to improvetheir health and wellbeing as theyawait permanent and long-term so-lutions to their housing plight.

    Councillor Ernest Sonnenberg,

    Mayoral Committee of Human Set-tlements for the City of Cape Town,said the capital project will be fund-ed with City funds as well as subsi-dy funds. It should be noted thatthe City funds relate primarily tothe overall planned infrastructureupgrade of the electrical infrastruc-ture for the entire Facreton area.

    When City officials conducted adoor to door survey earlier thisyear, it was discovered that thereare about 210 city owned houseswith 156 back-yard structures.

    Facreton will be the first area tobenefit fromthepilot project,which

    will also be rolled out in areas suchHanover Park and Langa.

    Sonnenberg said each unit car-ries a capital cost of around R48 865,which includes a water/sewerageconnection; precast toilet struc-tures, which are to be shared; elec-tricty meters; and connections toeach backyard structure.

    Partial funding goes towards thebulk electricity infrastructures andthe cost excludes the electrical in-frastructure upgrade for the entireFacreton area, says Sonnenberg.

    The project commenced lastmonth with the installation of bulk

    electricity and the provision ofrefuse bins.

    The provision of toilet and sewer-age connections are currently un-derway. Completion is expected inthe second quarter of 2012.

    There is a lot to be learnt fromthis project before the City will beready to roll it out to Cape Town asa whole, says Sonnenberg.

    Know the house rulesA SALE agreement comesinto effect when a prospec-tive buyer makes a writtenoffer to a seller and the sell-er accepts that offer to pur-chase his/her property onthe terms and conditionsagreed upon.

    The next step is to give ef-fect to this sale by formallytransferring the propertyfrom the Seller to the Buyeras registered and recorded inour Deeds Office.

    The Seller either directly orthrough an estate agent orauctioneer, then instructs aconveyancing attorney totransfer the property interms of the sale agreement.

    The average time to com-plete the process from sale totransfer is about 12-14 weeks,though complicating issues,arising from a deceased es-tate or divorce, could in-crease this period considera-bly.

    Once instruction has beenreceived, the transferring at-torney opens a file and en-sures that suspensive condi-tions have been compliedwith. Example of a suspen-sive condition is the paymentof a deposit.

    The transferring attorneywill draft the transfer docu-ments in preparation for sig-

    nature by the Seller and Buy-er.

    Five basic documents arerequired for the transfer of animmovable property, namelythe Power of Attorney; the ex-isting Title Deed in terms ofwhich the Seller is the cur-rent registered owner; theDeed of Transfer in terms ofwhich the Buyer will becomethe new registered owner; theTransfer Duty Receipt andRates Clearance Certificate.

    Transfer Duty is a tax paya-ble by the Buyer on the pur-chase and transfer of immov-able property. This cost is inaddition to the transferringattorneys fees. However, thetransaction may be exemptfor transfer duty tax if thepurchase price is R600 000 orless (as per current legisla-tion). Transfer duty tax is cal-culated as follows:

    R0-R600 000=no transfer du-ty payable

    R600 000.01 toR1 000 000=3% of the value be-tween these amounts

    R1 000 000,01 toR1 500 000=5% + R12 000

    Above R1 500 000=8% +R37 000

    A Rates Clearance Certifi-cate is issued by the City ofCape Town to the transfer-ring attorney upon settle-ment of the Sellers rates,

    which includes advance col-lections on the rates accountfor a period of 120 days.

    This cost is payable by theSeller. Once the documentsare in order the transferringattorneywill contact thebondattorneys and the bond can-cellation attorney and ar-range a date to lodge their re-spective deeds simultaneous-ly at the Deeds Office.

    The documents are exam-ined and usually becomeavailable for registrationwithin 10-12 working daysfrom date of lodgement.

    The transfer, bond andbond cancellation are then si-multaneously registered re-sulting in the transfer beingeffected between the Sellerand Buyer.

    This is a basic overview ofthe transfer process and cir-cumstances may vary accord-ing to the particularities ofeach transaction.

    The Buyer will be liable forthe bond attorneys registra-tion costs in addition to thetransfer costs. The Seller willbe liable for the settlementamount of the bond as well asthe bond cancellation attor-neys costs. Prospective buy-ers should request a quota-tion in advance so that theyare able to budget for thetransactions.
