FHA is a specialist Property Law and Conveyancing practice with offices conveniently located on Victoria Avenue in Hout Bay, Cape Town. We are acutely aware that time is money in dealing with the sale and transfer of your property, and we have built a solid reputation on prompt and efficient service.

The conveyancing market is undoubtedly moving into, and embracing, the future: with technology at our fingertips, communication and interaction with role-players in the conveyancing process has become increasingly computerised, and client-service has been enhanced through curtailed turn-around times and more accurate reporting mechanisms.

With this in mind, Frank Holland set out to establish FHA as a modern conveyancing practice, in tune with the technologies available, whilst never losing sight of the fact that property transactions will always be unique, and that the value of personal attention to the intricacies that exist in a particular transaction can never be overlooked or underestimated.

Frank attended Wynberg Boys High School and thereafter obtained his BA (Law), LLB degrees at the University of Stellenbosch. After completing his articles of clerkship with a well-established conveyancing firm, Frank went on to establish a successful branch-office for that firm. His entrepreneurial spirit saw him identify the opportunity to create a specialist property and conveyancing practice in the heart of Hout Bay, and FHA was born.
