Thank you for your patience as we are launching a new website.  Many things have changed, - for example: when you search your property using a property number (R123456), please remove the ‘R’ and only use the digits (123456).  We are continuing to update the website, so please contact us or check back later for more updates.  Please email or call us if you have any questions or concerns.
