Did you know, the Pietermaritzburg High Court can be used instead of the Durban High Court?

The KwaZulu-Natal Division of the High Court is a superior court of law with general jurisdiction over the whole of the province of KwaZulu-Natal, so no matter what part of KZN your cause of action arose, the Pietermaritzburg High Court, with its very efficient staff, will have jurisdiction for your matter.

We are uniquely positioned to provide services in matters arising in Durban, at the Pietermaritzburg High Court. This is because the court in PMB has full jurisdiction over Durban, meaning that any legal matters arising in the city can be handled in the court.

Why use the Pietermaritzburg High Court?

“We find that many Durban attorneys would rather use the Pietermaritzburg High Court due to how organised it is, as well as the high level of efficiency. It is also known for its quick turn around time in comparison to the court in Durban.” Viv Greene, Pietermaritzburg

The Durban High Court

The KwaZulu-Natal High Court, Durban, commonly known as the Durban High Court is one of the High Courts of South Africa. It sits at Durban and has general jurisdiction over some of the coastal districts of KwaZulu-Natal.

The main seat of the division is at Pietermaritzburg, while a subordinate local seat at Durban has concurrent jurisdiction over the coastal region of the province.

The Durban High Court is a local division subordinate to the KwaZulu-Natal High Court, Pietermaritzburg and is under the leadership of the Judge President of the Pietermaritzburg court, as Durban does not have its own Judge President. It is only a court of first instance and does not have appellate jurisdiction; appeals from the magistrates’ courts must be heard at Pietermaritzburg.
