It appears that as from 20 November 2014, the Deeds Office no longer allows bulk data to be requested in Excel format. This is a huge issue for anyone relying on bulk Deeds Office data. From now on only the TXT (mainframe raw data) is available.
Only a few companies in South Africa has a converter able to interpret the information returned from the Deeds Office of which mydeedsearch is one of them.
This is just another blow to people relying on property information from the Deeds Office and another sign that the Deeds Office is struggling to maintain their systems.
