The Legal Profession: Lawyers: Who are they and what functions do they deliver?

In this blog; we thought we would answer a question which often arises; as the man in the street gets confused between lawyers, attorneys, advocates and several other generic names for those who practice law as legal practitioners.

We hope to clarify this question.

Who and what are lawyers?

CONSUMERPROTECTION

Motor vehicles are one of our most prized possessions and yet many of us have nightmares when we buy a motor vehicle from a dealership and we have numerous problems with the vehicle we bought.

This happens often; but there is a solution.

Over the past month; we have had numerous queries from consumers who have bought cars from second hand car dealers; and who are a short while later, discovering various serious defects in those vehicles.

This clearly is a problem and the dealers, by and large, do not abide by the law or otherwise seek to interpret in a manner which is beneficial to them and not the customer.

“Water is Life.”

As Cape Town continues to brace itself for a possible day zero; a number of questions have been raised with us about how this water crisis affects the rights of tenants and landlords.

Both landlords and tenants have contractual obligations to one another as part of their lease agreements; but what happens in this drought situation if circumstances make it impossible for one or either of them to comply due to circumstances beyond their control.

A drought would fall under the common law definition of “An act of God” and most lease agreements make provision for such an event.
