Tens of thousands of motor vehicles are bought every month for both new and second-hand

motor car dealerships and there are many complaints for the purchasers about the quality of the vehicle bought by them.

Motor vehicles are high-value items and also at the same time a depreciating asset.

As a result of a number of queries in this regard we intend today to go over the above topic again.

 Termination of rental agreement1

The inconvenience for a landlord caused by an early cancellation will no doubt be annoying  but it is clear that a tenant has the RIGHT to cancel a lease

One of the matters that we specialise in is Consumer law and lease agreement terminations.

Here is a recent query that was received by The Legal Advice Office last week:

“Hi, Hugh. I refer to our telephone call. I bought a business last year in September and signed a three-year lease agreement for its premises with the landlord. I also signed as surety for my company which runs the business. The business is losing money each month and I need your advice and help on getting out of this lease. Can you please help me?”

We will try to answer this question in this blog.

We will try today to give you some practical guidelines on what to do when you have bought a “lemon!”

As a consumer forum and as consumers lawyers; we are often involved in cases where clients of ours have bought a defective motor vehicle and refer the matter to us for legal advice on their rights in these circumstances; and also sometimes to provide them with proper professional legal services to resolve and mediate the matter with the dealer or private seller.

Here are some of the common questions sent to us.

  1. What do I do if I have purchased a defective or damaged motor vehicle from a  dealer?
  2. How does the Common Law protect me when I have bought a defective vehicle privately?
  3. How does the Consumer Protection Act No 68 of 2008 (CPA) protect me as I  bought a damaged and defective vehicle three months ago and the dealer it is not his problem?
