Chief Registrar’s Circular 1/2012

26 January 2012

Registrar’s Circular No 1 of 2012 – Rectification of title deeds and updating of deeds registry records regarding the vesting of state land.

This Circular contains procedures for the rectification of title deeds and the updating of deeds registry records with regard to the vesting of immovable state land. ¬†Since the procedure contained in CRC 9/2008 is not correctly implemented in all the deeds registries – many title deeds incorrectly reflect amongst other things a government department or the ‘Republic of South Africa’ as the registered owner of state land – ¬†they must be rectified.

Such deeds must be endorsed in terms of section 3(1)(v) of Act No. 47 of 1937 to reflect that the relevant property / right / asset vests in the:

“National Government of the Republic of South Africa / Provincial Government of …………………………………………….. (state relevant Province)”.
