What are transfer attorney fees?

These are fees paid to the attorney responsible for transferring the bond from the seller to the buyer.

The transfer attorney (aka conveyancing attorney) is hired by the seller but paid by the buyer.

The transfer costs depend on the purchase price of the home. The higher the purchase, the higher the transfer cost. Use our Transfer Cost Calculator to determine how much you will pay for transfer costs.

In addition to transfer costs, you pay transfer duty, which is a tax paid to SARS on the transfer of property. Properties worth less than R1 100 000 are exempt from transfer duty.
