About us

The firm was founded in 1988 and has grown from strength to strength since then. Jacques Van Staden has been practising for his own account since 1988. In 1999 the firm was transformed into an incorporated company in order to give more flexibility and freedom to our employees and management team in our operations.

VS & B Inc. is a dynamic, well-established law firm with many years experience in Conveyancing and Property related transactions providing professional legal services and determining legal solutions to a diverse client base. Our firm, as well as our Directors, have been long standing professionals in the property market, not only in the development playing field but also in relation to home loans, Investments, Legal matters, PIP’s, Commercial transactions, Retail transactions, etc. We have had a mutual respect and understanding of all of our clients’ business needs and requirements for many years.
Our firm has managed to maintain the highest level of integrity and understanding and have succeeded in meeting the expectations of our clients over the years. We take pride in the fact that we are able to deliver a service far superior to that of our competitors.

As an incorporated company we have been able to diversify our various legal departments and have structured our personnel around these functions.
This diversity has enabled us to solve various legal problems for clients efficiently and promptly. We are confident that we have created a sociable, resourceful and reliable working environment conducive to a legal practice that can deliver a service that a client expects from an established firm of attorneys.

What sets us apart from our competitors is our ability to register bulk developments (sectional title and residential including the first transfers to end users of more than 100 transfers simultaneously) as well as similar bulk registrations of free hold developments in the deeds office registries.

We are currently on the panel of all the major banks, Standard Bank, First National Bank, FNB Housing, Nedbank, ABSA Bank, HIP and SA Home Loans and our strong relationship with the various banking institutions makes it very easy to assist our developers in obtaining the necessary finance for the properties being built and to transfer these properties and attend to the registration of the mortgage bonds to end users.
We have become leaders in our fields and our client base is broad. We do not only provide services to the “man on the street” but also to small/large development or commercial companies.
