The Repeal of the Black Administration Act and Amendment of Certain Laws Act 28 of 2005 commenced on 12 April 2006. This Act repeals the notorious Black Administration Act 38 of 1927 in terms of which almost every aspect of the daily lives of indigenous South Africans was regulated and administered. This repeal, however, also had repercussions for deeds and registries in South Africa. Accordingly, the Deeds Registries Amendment Act 5 of 2006 was passed by Parliament during July 2006 to deal with these consequential amendments. Section 3(1)(p)(bis) was inserted into the Deeds Registries Act 47 of 1937 and provides that despite the repeal of the regulations, proclamations and by-laws made under ss 25(1), 30(2) and 30A(1) of the Black Administration Act any registerable transaction concerning a right originally acquired in terms of the repealed Act will continue to be registered in accordance with the legislation which created that right.
