The Ship has Sailed … Almost
The National Assembly unanimously passed the Property Practitioners Bill on Tuesday 4 December 2018.
Please refer to our report of 23 November 2018 in which we highlighted the challenges. See below.
This is however, not the end of the road. The bill still has to be passed by the National Council of Provinces. This will only happen next year when Parliament sits again and after which the President can still consider same before signing the Bill into law.
Rebosa will still do everything humanly possible to effect the necessary changes we have been lobbying for. Below please find the latest and still valid Rebosa comments (with highlighted paragraphs) on the Bill’s current version. There is a long way to go.
For those of us wishing to blame government for what is lacking/wrong in the Bill, must please note that the Bill was passed unanimously. This effectively means that all the opposition parties also agreed to pass the Bill. This is therefore not just a government issue.
