break a contract 700x350

All fixed terms agreements only apply to natural people like you and me and not to companies. This is the first important aspect to note.

On a regular basis, we receive enquiries at The Legal Advice Office about how a consumer can go about terminating a fixed term contract.

Both the common law and the Consumer Protection Act No 68 of 2008 (CPA) can play a role in this subject; so we thought we would today look at the role of the CPA in this regard.

New but Defective car

The supplier’s written guarantee does not replace the warranty created and contained in the CPA.

A Case Study

In response to our last blog on the consumer’s right to a repair, replacement or refund; we received the following query on Saturday morning.

“I read your blog on section 56(2) of the CPA on Facebook. My situation is different. I bought a new vehicle from a BMW dealer in Benoni in a cash transaction. Within a period of 6 months, the vehicle had to go in for repairs on two occasions, the last time was on the 22nd March 2018. On both occasions, the dealership repaired the vehicle at their own expense. In both instances; the repairs related to mechanical problems with the vehicle's transmission. In the last week the vehicle has again broken down and I am now at my wit's end. Do I have to allow them to repair the vehicle yet again or can I still insist on a replacement or a refund of my money?”

ANContract

Should I have an ANC if I am getting married in a few weeks’ time?

A brief discussion of the ANC and the purpose of an ANC.

Most couples in preparing to tie the knot leave this question until very late in their wedding preparations. The writer on occasion in the past had to arrange for an ANC on the preceding Friday afternoon before the Saturday wedding at 10 am. That is cutting it fine.

During the excitement of a couple's impending wedding; it is easy to forget about the aspect of an ante-nuptial contract. It is however vitally important that you and your future spouse discuss the matrimonial property regime best suited to your financial needs from the date that you are married.
