On Friday 28 March 2019 the National Council of Provinces passed the Property Practitioners Bill. This means that the Bill will now be placed upon President Ramaphosa’s desk for signature. As soon as he signs, the Bill will become law. We don’t know yet if the Bill was passed with any amendments .
The Property Practitioners Act will replace the current Estate Agency Affairs Act. The new law will be accompanied by a set of Regulations that have yet to be published.
