PREPARATION FOR LODGEMENT

We are committed to delivering on the following promises: 

 

WE PROMISE to get your transfer through on time. Sometimes delays are caused by other role players, over whose process we have no control. Should this happen, we further promise to make every effort to smooth away the hurdles and speed up the process, as we know that a delay in the transfer date may have negative financial implications for you. 

WE PROMISE to be available for any questions or queries. We know that questions don’t keep office hours, so we make ourselves available any time of the day. 

WE PROMISE to consult with you for free until the transfer is registered. 

WE PROMISE to keep you updated throughout the process. Instant messages will be sent as important milestones are reached and progress reports are sent on a weekly basis. For your convenience, you will be able to track the milestone history and expected registration date on LexisTracker with your unique login details.
