Garlicke & Bousfield Inc


Our Conveyancing Department is headed up by 4 directors. Dave Ramsay is a senior director of the firm with 32 years of conveyancing experience and who oversees the La Lucia Ridge office. Graeme Phillips, also a director with extensive experience in all aspects of conveyancing, is actively involved in a large proportion of conveyancing work emanating from the Umhlanga/La Lucia/Mount Edgecombe areas. Aletta de Lange and Simphiwe Maphumulo also have extensive experience in conveyancing development work and the structuring of sectional title and freehold development schemes.


Assisting in the supervision of the department is Senior Associate, Carla Martin. In addition, we have a team of 25 paralegals dedicated to conveyancing. Our paralegals specialise in particular areas of conveyancing, for example, township work, registration of transfers or bond registrations on behalf of various banking institutions.


Our Conveyancing department offers a wide range of conveyancing services and has particular expertise in township development (both rural and urban) and sectional title developments. We have developed a close working relationship with a number of developers on the Mount Edgecombe and Zimbali Estates on whose behalf we handle transfers arising from these and other developments.


We have experience with the requirements of the banks who finance new property developments, shopping centres and commercial enterprises, including their presale requirements for the release of development finance.


We also have specialist expertise in the laying out and approval of subdivisions of agricultural land, dealing with the provisions of the Subdivision of Agricultural Land Act, and the drawing of a wide range of servitudes in order to protect the interests of various parties.


We are fortunate to have been involved in setting up the structures for various golf estates including Mount Edgecombe, Zimbali, Simbithi and Cotswold Downs.



Throughout our many years of practice, we are fortunate to have built a substantial client base, comprising a number of major corporates, institutions and individual/private clients. These clients include the Tongaat-Hulett Group, Illovo Sugar Limited, the Spar Group, all of the major banking institutions, the Grindrod Group, the South African Sugar Association, Sapref, the Bidvest Group, a number of insurance companies, Credit Guarantee, Old Mutual, Corobrik(Pty)Ltd and various property developers.

Our Property and Commercial Departments are currently actively involved in advising and assisting on a number of major strategic undertakings for the Durban and North Coast region, including the Durban Point Waterfront, the Sibaya Casino at Umdloti, the Riverhorse Valley project and others.
