Reopening of Deeds Offices on Track

May 11, 2020

Department of Agriculture, Land Reform and Rural Development

Deeds offices will reopen as soon as necessary health measures are put in place.

In a statement, the agriculture, land reform and rural development department confirmed that deeds registration has been identified as an essential service in terms of COVID-19 level 4 lockdown regulations.

“Level 4 regulations require that the department puts in place necessary health measures before the services can resume. These measures will ensure that clients and departmental officials are
not exposed to any health risks.”

According to the Chief Registrar of Deeds, the implementation plan for health measures is at an advanced stage and will be completed soon.

A reopening date will be announced in due course.
