Welcome to

van der post

Two firms of attorneys, McIntyre & Watkeys and Wiley van der Post, both established in the 19th Century, amalgamated on 1 March 1957 and the new firm, McIntyre & Van der Post came into being. In the subsequent 60-odd years we have grown and developed further, offering an even wider range of legal services. Today we are a large firm of attorneys that specialises in Property, Estates, Collections, Commercial Law, Family Law and General Litigation.

Change calls for innovation. Innovation leads to progress. Concepts that we embrace.

05 Nov: A costly case of buyer’s remorse

Buying or selling property is a big deal for most of us, and no one wants to be in the position of a couple who, having viewed a house advertised as “a renovator’s dream”, signed an offer to purchase immediately but then changed their minds.
