Private Bonds | 8 September 2015

Posted on: September 8th, 2015 by Niel Grundlingh

Often clients investigate the possibility of registering  a private bond for funds advanced to a third party. For example where a purchaser obtains a loan from a family member or source other than a bank for funds with which to purchase a property, the lender will want to secure the purchaser’s obligations to it by registration of a bond.

The National Credit Act lays down requirements that must be complied with where such a loan is at arm’s length and in excess of R500 000, including that the lender must register as credit provider with the National Credit Regulator, a process which takes between 6-8 weeks.

The private bond can be registered in the Deeds Office while the application to register as a credit provider is ongoing.
