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.

 debt free

Be very circumspect when dealing with collection agencies and that includes firms of attorneys that specialise in this area of the law.

Do not believe everything that you are told by a collection agent or attorney as they will look after their own interests and those of their client; before they give a thought to you and your interests.

Prescription of a Debt: What does it mean? Part 2:

debt help for women

Benjamin Franklin said: “Better to go to bed without dinner than to rise in debt.” However, debt is not something we can all avoid.

Prescription of a Debt: What does it mean? Part 1:

The Prescription Act; No 68 of 1969; provides in Chapter III for the extinction of debt by prescription.

What does this mean?

A debt is extinguished by prescription after the lapse of the period which applies in respect of that particular type of debt. This means that after that period the debt cannot be revived even under the provisions of the Act relating to the interruption of prescription by the acknowledgment of liability; unless that new acknowledgment amounts to a new undertaking altogether to pay; which novates the old prescribed debt and amounts to a completely new debt and cause of action.


One of the issues that crop up on a regular basis with The Legal Advice Office are queries and advice sought from us when you have been lied to or, at least, not been told the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.
If someone sells you an item, for example, a motor car, and they do not fully disclose to you any defects in that vehicle that they knew about or should reasonably have known about; then you have certain legal rights and recourse.

In our previous  blog we answered some FAQ’s about motor car accidents and the consequences.

As previously, we reiterate that if you have been recently involved in a motor vehicle accident and need advice or legal services on the RAF, civil or criminal damages claims you may have as a result of the collision; then please contact our office and/or legal consultant, as soon as possible for obtaining proper, professional legal advice.

We will today answer a few more to finalise this topic for now.

In our last blog we gave you all guidelines on what to do after you are involved in a motor car accident. We stress that it is always advisable for you to seek prompt, proper and professional legal advice and also to secure reliable legal services when dealing with this and any other type of factual and legal dispute. It is always advisable to be aware fully of all your legal rights in any given circumstances.

Today we answer some questions that are often asked by our clients.

Car accidents happen at the rate of hundreds a day.

Some just a fender bender; others serious accidents where people are seriously injured and/or killed.
We all hope never to be involved in a car accident, but if we are, what must we do?
