Despite having staff on hand to register the last transactions during the festive season, the Deeds Office went on a go-slow during December.
We are still struggling to get registration of matters lodged in the first 2 weeks of December and this is causing endless problems for everyone concerned. There is no explanation for this and conveyancers are tearing their hair out.
What we need are some whips and chains, says Dave Mc Naught, principal of Mc Naught and Company. It is really unacceptable for matters lodged on the 12th December 2006 to only come up for registration now. Our office staff were on stand-by to effect registrations any day over December. May 2007 bring us a sense of urgency and efficiency!!!
