“Water is Life.”

As Cape Town continues to brace itself for a possible day zero; a number of questions have been raised with us about how this water crisis affects the rights of tenants and landlords.

Both landlords and tenants have contractual obligations to one another as part of their lease agreements; but what happens in this drought situation if circumstances make it impossible for one or either of them to comply due to circumstances beyond their control.

A drought would fall under the common law definition of “An act of God” and most lease agreements make provision for such an event.

Consumer Protection

The answer to this question is found in The Consumer Protection Act: No 68 of 2008(CPA): Section 55: Consumer’s rights to safe, good quality goods:

“Quality is everyone’s responsibility” is a quote by W. Edward Deming; and should be aspired to by all of us.

In our previous blog we looked at what you can do if you buy a defective item.

Now we look at why it is that we enjoy that protection.

Goodwill is essential for any business and good service is paramount to keeping your customers.

As Jerry Flanagan said:

“ Customers are like teeth. If you do not look after them, they go away one by one until there are none left.”

It is a pity that so many service providers do not give sufficient attention to their service delivery.

You get a real shock when you find out that an item that you just purchased is not working as it should or is defective and you paid a great deal of money for it.
