David L. Carey Miller

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the law governing the transfer of ownership in South Africa. It covers the following: the basis of derivative acquisition; modes of delivery of movable property; the transfer of ownership in land; and the requirement of payment in contracts of sale. The derivative acquisition of property is well established in South African law. Future development, at least in respect of land, will be partly driven by the Constitution and concerned with the restitution, redistribution, and upgrading of rights.

Keywords:   South African law, transfer of ownership, property acquisition, land ownership
