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?”

break lease agreement

You can not just pack up and move out.

The termination or cancellation of a commercial lease agreement/s is always a legal conundrum.

One of the matters that we specialise in is Consumer law and also in lease agreement cancellations and terminations.

It is a contract and must be dealt with correctly and legally if you want to cancel it or terminate it prematurely ie before its expiry date.

You cannot just cancel a lease agreement.

If you breach the lease and simply vacate and abandon the premises the High Court can grant the landlord an order for specific performance.

This can mean that the court orders you to return to the premises and pay the rental for the balance of the lease period. Alternatively, it can allow the landlord the right to cancel the lease because of your breach and grant an order for damages in favour of the landlord being equivalent to the rent due for the balance of the period.

What are your rights when your vehicle breaks again as a result of soddy workmanship?

We still get a lot of enquiries from clients and consumers who feel that they have been ripped off.

A recent example was of a client who had his vehicle repaired by a service provider in Welkom in the Orange Free State.

 “My vehicle broke down on the N1 four months ago. I had the vehicle towed to a service centre in Welkom with an oil leak on the Gearbox. They ended up redoing the engine which took more than 4 months. After doing the engine on the vehicle and when it was still in their workshop; there was a bearing knock and they had to redo the engine again. I had already paid them R162 000.00 for this first repair and they then wanted to charge me again for the second repair even though they never returned the vehicle to me and they failed while the vehicle was still with them to repair it properly in the first place in terms of their quote. What are my rights?”
