Andrew Heiberg

Director

Andrew Heiberg is a Director in our Real Estate practice. He specializes in both commercial and residential property transfers and developments as well as commercial property finance transactions. Andrew has been involved in the establishment of several residential and commercial property developments and is currently involved in a residential development,  called the Rondebosch Oval, which is unique in that it is established around a cricket oval, where balancing the rights and obligations of the developer, the cricket club and the future owners of properties within the development was paramount, especially when it came to the drafting the Home Owners Association Constitution.

In addition to dealing with all aspects of conveyancing, Andrew specializes in sectional title transactions, deceased estate property transfers and share-block related work. One of his recent successes was opening a new sectional title scheme called The Curragh, which was the first scheme handled by our practice requiring the approval of the CSOS ombud. He managed to secure the necessary CSOS certificate in record time and despite many other construction challenges, managed to register the scheme on the last day of the deeds office year in 2016, saving the developer significant holding costs and embarrassment.

Andrew prides himself on providing a personal service to his clients and on regular and comprehensive updates on the various matters under his supervision.

Andrew began his career as a Candidate Attorney at Silberbauers in 1992. In 1994 he was appointed as an Associate and in 1998 as a Director. Silberbauers joined the practice of Cliffe Dekker Fuller Moore (now Cliffe Dekker Hofmeyr) in 1999 where Andrew remained a Director.
