 shoplifting pen

The expunging of criminal records. Fact or fantasy?

Here is an interesting inquiry that we received in on Friday last week from a client who we advised accordingly.

“I completed my tertiary education at the end of 2017 and I have been looking for employment since January 2018. I just can’t get work, mainly, I think, because I have a criminal record. The criminal record stems from a case of shoplifting that I committed in 2007 and to which charge I pleaded guilty and for which I received an R500 fine without any suspended sentence attached. Can my criminal record be removed?”

“Yes, it can” is the short answer to your question.

 gas compliance certificate

Both sellers and Estate Agents should be made aware of this legal requirement.

Last week we received this inquiry.

 “I am in the process of selling my house. I have a permanent gas oven in the house and the transferring attorney is now telling me that I need to get a gas compliance certificate for my gas oven. Is this necessary, and should the buyer not be responsible for this and the cost involved in getting one?”

shareholders meeting web

How, when and who must make valid company resolutions?

“My father owns a family run business and I have just bought a shareholding in that business. I’ve been part of the family business for some time; but now that I am a shareholder and director of that business; it has dawned on me that I know very little about how a company is run in practice and how the company’s directors and shareholders are supposed to take decisions. What should I know about company resolutions and what is my role in those resolutions and the decisions made by the directors of the company?”
