Abstract:At present the South African procedure of deeds registration is a system which is technically highly developed and shows strong historical ties. It is agreed that this procedure is derived mainly from the Germanic common law, especially as regards the formal and symbolic acts of transfer which are characteristic of the Germanic conveyance procedure with regard to immovable property. This article describes the characteristics of the South African deeds (documents) registration system and the German system of registration, with emphasis on the transfer of real rights to immovable property. It compares both systems and concludes that the South African system of registration is cumbersome. Therefore, some adjustments are proposed. Notes, ref.
