• Does Nedbank sell properties to make a profit?
  • No. Nedbank's main objective is to minimize the default indebtedness of the property’s previous owner. Nedbank does attempt to cover the costs incurred through the purchase of the property and sale in execution process.
  • Who owns the Nedbank properties in possession?
  • All repossessed properties listed by Nedbank were previously bonded by Nedbank. When the previous owner defaulted on their financial obligations the property was put up for sale at public auction. When a property does not reach its asking price it is bought by Nedbank. As such, properties in possession are registered to, or in the process of being registered to, Nedbank.
  • How long does it take to register a repossessed property?
  • The process of registering a repossessed property in an individual’s name is more complex than a transfer between private individuals. Nedbank endeavours to make the process as swift as possible, but the registration may take between 4 and 6 months.


  • Nedbank does NOT sell properties via online auction – repossessed properties are listed on the MyRoof.co.za website.
  • Nedbank owns properties in possession and as such reserves the right to accept or decline offers at their sole discretion.
  • The buyer corresponds directly with Nedbank during the offer and purchase process.
  • Nedbank Ltd does not guarantee vacant occupation
  • After the purchaser has inspected the property, he/she agrees and accepts the risks associated with the property.
  • If there is an error in the description of the property, such error will not be binding on the parties, who will in such an event be entitled to rectification of this agreement to describe the property as set out in the seller’s title deed.
