Mining Rights

Land surveyors provide crucial services to attorneys and conveyancers regarding the registration of real rights and rights in land.


Specialist services are also provided during disputes and court cases as expert witnesses.


Services include  SPLUMA verification & certification, cadastral / land use right certificates, formal description of properties, layout plans, servitude conditions, areas, volumes & statutory requirements for development.

We provide a comprehensive property development service that includes  pre-development  consultation and remain involved to and beyond registration.

Property owners are often poorly informed regarding the development control restrictions and actual boundaries of their properties.


The SPLUMA Act and resulting Municipal by-law have resulted in many delays in the final transfer of properties in the deeds office as there is a delay in the issuing of SPLUMA certificates by the local municipality.


Services include the verification of boundaries, determination of zoning and land use, supply of color aerial photography, verification of access roads and servitudes, title deed restrictions and provisioning of layout plans for marketing.


Traditionally, Land Surveyors were requested by financial institutions to supply certificates of identification concerning properties that are to be financed.


However, as the financing of properties have become more complex due to varying development structures and layering, we provide more specific information on these developments that also include asset management information.


Local knowledge has proven to be invaluable in legal investigations as we maintain a comprehensive record of development projects.


The formalization, renewing or extension of mining rights require various documents and information regarding land use rights and boundaries.

The SPLUMA act has now also introduced a new requirement, to the already complex matter, by requiring that all mining areas comply to the municipal land use scheme.

Regulation 2(2) plans are prepared for Reconnaissance Permits (Section 13), Prospecting Rights (Section 16), Mining Rights (Section 22), Exploration Rights (Section 79) and Amendments of Rights (Section 102) in terms of the Mineral and Petroleum Resources Development Act 2002, Act 28 of 2002.
