David Dewar

David Dewar

David is an experienced attorney with a very broad background who operates mainly in the fields of property and construction law, with a strong focus on conveyancing. He began his career as a general practitioner, having run his own practice Dewar Attorneys from early in his career, dealing mostly in commercial litigation and property law. He then moved out of practice for a few years, while he was working in the commercial property sector, where he got to know the industry from the inside, having taken on various roles in that sector of the economy, including FSB compliance, broker, and as a director on a collective investment scheme. He then worked extensively with the National Credit Act more specifically in respect of debt counselling. He oversaw property transfers and bond registrations. A large portion of his practice was dealing with tenant issues, such as drafting leases and the eviction of defaulting tenants and the recovery of rent.

David retained his touch in the commercial property sector and this gave rise to him being the national manager for commercial property finance at Bidvest Bank, adding an intimate knowledge of the machinations of commercial property finance to his broad property experience. David focuses on conveyancing in both the residential sector as well as the commercial sector, where he is able to advise on the tax implications of an agreement as well as being able to undertake due diligences on property acquisitions as part of his expertise. David is an experienced and skilled negotiator.

David has a degree in regional geography and environmental science from UCT, a law degree from UJ, commercial property diploma from UP and an MBA from Stellenbosch. Each of these gives him a different perspective on a problem and allow him to find the correct solution for a given issue, which may be based in law or may be based in commercial principles, whichever is better in the given situation.
