  • Business Entities:

    We previously looked at the general rules to follow when starting a business.

    Let us now look at the various business entities.

    Some of them are Juristic persons.

  • Business Licences: Starting a Business; A few pointers

    We often get enquiries about whether it is necessary to register your business, if you are starting one; and what does this cost?

    The short answer is that you do not need to register your business with the National Government, Provincial Government or even with the Municipality.

  • Buying Residential Property: Tips:

    We have this week looked at the CPA; but today we will look at something completely different and will share with you some tips on the buying of residential property.

    Your house is your home and probably your biggest ever investment. It helps to study in detail all aspects of the purchase of a house before making the investment.

    There are, in my view, as a previously practising Conveyancer, 6 simple factors that should always be checked out by anyone looking to buy a residential property.

  • General Business Advice: Starting a Business.

    We often get enquiries about how, when and where to start a business.

    In today’s economic world jobs are difficult to come by and experience is almost always a non-negotiable requirement for placement.

    Where do you start?

  • Help, I am in debt! How do I deal with this?? Advice from one Debtor to another.


    We all owe money to one or more creditors.

    Sometimes it is a lot of money owed to a bank like for example the bond on our house or the car that we bought for ourselves or the family.

    At other times it is a smaller amounts owed on a credit card or on one or more clothing accounts etc.

    All debt and the repayment of debt is however important and we should not underestimate the role it plays in all of our lives. As we know; credit providers including banks, financial institutions, clothing shops and other retailers provide information on our debt levels and our record of repaying that debt to the various credit record companies like ITC, Experian etc; and it is these records that give other retailers an indication of your credit health. They do research before they decide whether or not to lend you money or allow you to open another account. Your credit health and record are vitally important to your everyday life and financial well-being. It is to your advantage to look after your credit health.

  • The Consumer Protection Act No 68 of 2008 (CPA): Chapter 3: Protection of Consumer’s rights and Consumers Voice: Continued: Section 70: Alternative Dispute Resolution; and Section 71: Initiating complaint to Commission:

    As we saw on our last blog; that Chapter 3 of the CPA deals with the protection of the consumer’s rights and gives the consumer a voice where he/she can be heard.

    It consists of Part A to Part D; and it covers sections 68 to 78 of the CPA.

    In our last blog, we looked at section 69.

  • The Consumer Protection Act No 68 of 2008: (CPA): Section 56 (3) & (4):

    n our last two blogs we have been looking again at the implied warranty on the quality of goods guaranteed by the Consumer Protection Act (CPA) and more particularly section 55 & 56 of that Act of Parliament.

    As we now know; we, as consumers, have the choice of repair, refund or replace in the event of goods bought by us being defective or damaged at the time of the sale.

  • The Consumers rights to safe, good quality goods -continued

    The Consumer Protection Act No 68 of 2008 (CPA): The Consumers rights to safe, good quality goods. Continued: Section 55: Section 55(3).

    In our last blog we looked at Sections 55 (3).

    Today we will turn our attention to section 55(4).

    Section 55 (4) in its totality reads as follows:

  • The Legal Advice Office: Who are we and what do we do?

    What is The Legal Advice Office?

    Who are we and what do we actually do?

  • What to do if you buy a defective motor vehicle from a new or second hand dealer.

    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.

  • What to do if you purchase a defective or damaged motor vehicle from a new or second hand dealer or service provider?

    How does the Common Law protect you in these circumstances and

    How does the Consumer Protection Act No 68 of 2008 (CPA) protect you?

    What do you need to do and what are the guidelines in this situation?
