COMPANY HISTORY


SCHAEFER ATTORNEYS, CONVEYANCERS AND NOTARIES, situated at 182 Cape Road, Mill Park (Tel no. 041 3730186/7; cell no. 0827818384), was established on 1 February 1999 when Morne and Tania Schaefer, a husband and wife team, commenced their successful journey.

They quickly grew as a Legal Company of legendary commitment to their clients. They intuitively realised that their strength lay in their love for properties and shifted their concentration to the Conveyancing of properties and the registration of bonds. Shortly after the opening of their practice they became part of an era that produced huge opportunities in the property market.

Through their diligence they quickly gained the trust of estate agents, the major financial institutions, the public in general and property developers who instructed them to attend to all legal work regarding the preparation and finalisation of the Opening of Sectional Title Registers, Hybrid Schemes and the registrations of the units in the schemes to the individual purchasers.
For five years they have also been actively involved as Developers. Schaefer Attorneys has a strong professional team consisting of four Conveyancers/ Attorneys/Notaries and a panel of highly competent, well-trained Conveyancing assistants most of them trained in-house from day one. These businessmen of integrity believe in a hands-on approach with their clients and will always make sure that they do not grow too big to lose the ‘family feeling’ that is so important, especially since they are dealing with the single most important asset which the average person will buy or sell which is their house. Morne and Tania are at ease with their clients who are welcome to contact them at any time for advice and assistance.

You are invited today to contact any of our attorneys for a personal consultation and advice on any conveyancing or development matter and
