The business is in possession of legal documents demonstrating the acquisition of land, property and water rights

What does this mean?

  • If the business acquired land, property or water, it is essential to be able to prove that this was done legally.
  • In terms of land rights, the business should be in possession of a valid title deed for the land or an appropriate rental agreement. 
  • In terms of water usage, you need to have the appropriate authorisation from the Department of Water Affairs (DWA)
