Hi guys, just checking, I have been waiting for a Clearance Certificate (on a property I am buying from M&T) for quite some time now, 21 worlking days to be exact.
How long does this process take anyway, is there somethingh else I can do besides just bombarding M&T Attorneys with calls and emails? Can I directly approach the City concerned (City of Tswhane)?

Thanks

Meally I also bought from M&T and it took about a month for it to come through. There is nothing much you can do as your waiting for the municipality.

Hey Tau1z I'm in the same boat, keep getting told it's due to their ***** up on billing. So far I owe over R2k on it but hey

we bought a new place, but havent moved in since occupation is on transfer. They cant transfer till they get the cert, and they wont negotiate a ridiculous occupational rent.
So everyone is losing at the moment. Extremely irritated

Wow that sucks, hopefully they sort it out soon, I've moved in, and for some reason transfer went through, it's just trying to get CoJ to sort out rates and taxes is a nightmare.
