  • Perhaps somebody owes you money and will not pay it back?

    Maybe someone damaged your property; your car or other property and refuses to fix it at their cost?

    You could always sue them in a court, but that takes time and normally costs a lot of money

  • Intellectual property procection copy

    Can someone use your ideas and posts on social media platforms without your consent?

    Last week we were asked to do a blog on Intellectual Property; in the sense that someone complained to us that people were using her ideas and posts on social media platforms without her consent.

    Can they do that??

    Intellectual property, in its broadest sense, can be an invention, an idea or a process/method of doing things that is the product of your work and/or your mind and would include registered trademarks and patents which are formally registered; but also your songs, music and even your blogs, writings, essays, articles and other writings such as poems, letters etc. They all form part of your Intellectual Property. You have the copyright in your IP.

    So the question arises can someone else use your ideas?

  • 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.

  • At The Legal Advice Office; we get many enquiries every single week from clients and consumers about whether, when and how they can go about returning faulty or damages goods that they have bought from a supplier.

  • Death, like taxes, they say, is inevitable (for all of us.)
    When it does happen we hope we go to Heaven; but what happens down here on Earth in our absence.

  • Consumer Protection

    The answer to this question is found in The Consumer Protection Act: No 68 of 2008(CPA): Section 55: Consumer’s rights to safe, good quality goods:

    “Quality is everyone’s responsibility” is a quote by W. Edward Deming; and should be aspired to by all of us.

    In our previous blog we looked at what you can do if you buy a defective item.

    Now we look at why it is that we enjoy that protection.
