Saunderson Attorneys Complaints - Ante Nuptial Contract (ANC) Not Registered!!!
Company Name :Saunderson Attorneys
In Aug. 2014, 4 months prior to our wedding, I contacted Sauderson Attorneys to draw up our ANC. I completed an application online and provided copies of our IDs in order for them to draft a contract. We received and signed the draft and asked 2 people to witness the Power of Attorney as per their instructions. I then couriered the signed draft to their offices in Roodepoort. Melissa was very helpful before receiving the requested payment. Thereafter communication became slow and I struggled to get answers from them. In Nov. 2014, I received a reply from Melissa, stating that the ANC had been registered with the Deeds Office and that she was awaiting the original microfilmed contract to be returned to them, but included a copy of the notarised ANC. In Jan. 2015, I asked Melissa to post the original back to me and provide a tracking number. It was only in Mar. 2015, after numerous reminders that I received a tracking number. It turned out that the tracking number did not exist. I then phoned the Deeds Office and it was confirmed that no ANC is registered in our names and the copy I had in my possession is a fake! We now need to have our marriage regime changed and it will be very costly! In the interim, I have already opened a criminal case at the police station and will also file complaints with the consumer protection commission, as well as the law society.
