Notification of transfer

92.Section 44 of the Act amends section 41 of the 2003 Act which is supplementary to and explanatory of section 40 of the 2003 Act. Section 40 of the 2003 Act prohibits owners and certain creditors from transferring land or taking action with a view to transferring land that is subject to a registered interest for so long as the interest is registered, other than in accordance with section 40(4) of the 2003 Act, which provides for “exempt” transfers.

93.Section 44 of the Act inserts subsection (3) into section 41 of the 2003 Act. It requires that where an owner or a creditor in a standard security with a right to sell land makes a transfer in terms of section 40(4) of the 2003 Act, they must inform Ministers within 28 days of this taking place. The new subsection (3) of section 41 of the 2003 Act also sets out the information which the owner or creditor must provide.
