The Bond Man - Property Finance Consultants


Issue 3 / October 2005


I’ve just returned from a fleeting visit to London to formalise an agreement between The Bond Man and Omega Mortgage Services Limited (UK). There are obvious synergies between our respective businesses, which I look forward to developing as Omega’s official representative in South Africa. For several years, the guys from Omega have been bringing out exhibitions to South Africa to market property developments in the UK to local buyers. I hope to add value to their future exhibitions by offering a comprehensive financial service to prospective buyers, on behalf of Omega. Our association with this highly regarded company has other benefits to the local property scene. In terms of Exchange Control legislation, Non-Resident buyers purchasing property in South Africa may avail of local mortgage borrowings of up to 50% of the purchase price. Until now, these clients have been left to their own devices to raise the balance of the purchase price, or the full purchase price, on their off-shore properties. Now The Bond Man, through our association with Omega Mortgage Services, can facilitate this leg of the transaction in a seamless and professional manner. Please don’t hesitate to contact us should you have any questions about mortgaging or re-financing a property in the UK.

Whilst in London, I also popped in to the annual Homes Overseas Exhibition at Earls Court, where several South African property companies were represented.

Closer to home, I am thrilled to announce that, in a major coup for The Bond Man, Jenni Warrington has come on board as bond broker extraordinaire! She and I have worked together in banking and property finance for the past 20 years, so her resignation as one of MortgageSA’s top consultants to join my business is a source of immense pride to me. Together, we are gearing up for what has already started as a very busy summer on the Cape Town property scene.

Revenue Stamp duty is no longer payable when you register a bond or a further advance, which makes it cheaper than ever to increase your existing "access bond" and put your home loan to work. The Bond Man can facilitate this for you.
