Moving now permitted (once-off)
In terms of the regulations published on 14 May 2020 in Government Gazette No 43320, moving once-off between business premises or residential premises is now permitted, between provinces, metropolitan and district boundaries, irrespective of when the lease agreement was entered into, and irrespective of when the registration of transfer of the property occurred. Provision is also made for those affected by domestic violence to move.
Those moving must ensure that they obtain a permit to do so, as well as a copy of the old lease together with the new lease/ proof of transfer of ownership of the property, or proof of change in or occupation of business premises, or in the case of domestic violence, the domestic violence order. There is also no time limit to move (as previously, people were given until 7 June 2020 to move- this has now been removed). This is a welcome change.
