What is repossession?
Property repossession in South Africa is the completion of the legal process to recover debt owed to a creditor (like the banks) that is secured by immovable assets (your house). This credit agreement is usually called a bond.
The final step to complete the legal process is for the property to be sold on auction at the Sheriffs office. This concludes the legal action as far as repossession is concerned. Only when the sale has been concluded is the property considered to be repossessed.
