Fixed term contracts, in certain circumstances, can now be lawfully terminated in terms of the Consumer Protection Act No 68 of 2008 (CPA.)

Prior to this Act; which came into effect on the 1st April 2011; the law of contract and the common law dealt exclusively with the issue of when, where and how fixed term agreements, including leases, expired or were renewed.

Divorce: Proprietary and Pension Fund Benefits:

In our last blog, we looked at proprietary rights on divorce.

Today we look specifically at pension benefits at divorce.

To start with here is a quote from the actress Zsa Zsa Gabor: “I have learned that not diamonds; but divorce lawyers are a girl’s best friend.”

In our last blog, we looked at a case study of the possible problems that can arise when buying a house.
Let us look at the transfer process.

The transfer process can be described in a step by step conveyancing process.

The ownership of our own home is a dream which all of us have; but not all of us will realise; and when the opportunity to own your own home knocks; do your homework! Get advice and in that way you will not make any mistakes.
A recent unreported case of Hlabane and Another versus Sebotsa and Others is a lesson to be learned.

The Consumer Protection Act No 68 of 2008 (CPA): Expiry and Renewal of fixed term contracts/agreements, especially Leases. Continued: Section 14 (3) & (4).

Today; to finalise this set of blogs on the above topic; we look at the last two subsections of section 14 dealing with the expiry and renewal of fixed term contracts and once again we will concentrate on leases as this is the most frequent source of enquiry; although the provisions of the whole of section 14 apply to ALL fixed term contracts.

As stated in our previous blog; at The Legal Advice Office we get numerous enquiries from clients and consumers seeking our help in terminating lease agreements because of one reason or another.

The CPA deals with the above subject and in our last blog we looked at section 14(1).
