radiator overheat

We, as consumers, have the choice of repair, refund or replace in the event of goods bought by us being defective or damaged at the time of the sale.

One of the branches of the Law that we specialise in is Consumer Law and often regarding defective motor vehicles. The inquiry was sent to us yesterday.

“Can I sue a dealer who has sold me a defective motor vehicle? My attorney told me to sue them for damages and wanted a  R 15000.00 deposit. What are my options? I bought the vehicle on the 20th January 2018 and it now has a seized engine as a result of a defective water connection pipe and I have been quoted R 66400.00 for repairs. Please advise me in this regard.

firearm lisence

The application to renew a firearm license must be filed at least 90 days before the expiry date.

During the course of last week; we received the following query.

 “I own a 9 mm Parabellum firearm, which has always been validly and legally licensed. At the end of last year and the first three months of 2018, I was out of the country for five months as a result of work commitments and as a result was unable to renew my firearm licence before its expiry in March 2018.

On my return, in April 2018, I went to the police, but they told me that because my licence had not timeously been renewed; the license was now invalid and that my possession of the firearm was now illegal.

Can this really be the case? Surely I have a valid excuse for not having renewed my licence on time?”
