Township establishment is when a municipality reviews the application to convert a piece of agricultural land into an area where residential, commercial, or industrial development occurs. The application approval announces a township.
The opening of a township register converts land on which a township is established into streets and erven (a plot of land) as depicted on a General Plan.
Both the establishment and opening of a township process are legal, and PM Attorneys’ experienced township opening attorneys in South Africa assist parties in the registration and legalisation of township establishments. We complete the process by submitting the Excision Certificate and the Title Deed to be endorsed with the new farm description.
