Expropriation Bill: Is your property safe?

Parliament recently adopted the Expropriation Bill, a piece of legislation that’s been in the works since 2008, which has seen strong opposition from critics who say it will undermine property rights and investor confidence. Ben Winks, associate at Herbert Smith Freehills South Africa, and Pierre Venter, General Management Human Settlements at The Banking Association South Africa, discuss this new legislation and its implications for South Africans and foreigners.
