lemon car

Did you buy a lemon? A recap…

On a regular basis, we receive queries in by email or phone where the client states something along these lines…

“I have read your article on your website about “What to do if you have bought a lemon? That is exactly what has happened to me; but please explain in more detail as to what are my legal options now that this has happened to me?”

One of the branches of the Law that we specialise in is Consumer Law, and in particular, we provide quoted advice and legal services regarding the purchase of defective motor vehicles.

privacypolicy web

The importance or otherwise of having a privacy policy for your business.

We all like our privacy but is privacy and a formal privacy policy for my business realty that important?

Last Friday we received the following query.

 “I am a local business owner and I’ve been working recently with developers to take my business online. They have advised me to make sure I have a proper privacy policy drawn up for my website. Is this really necessary or can I just use a standard one from the internet?”

grandparents

It is important to note the difference between an order for care and one for contact.

Quite a few years ago; and before the new Children's Act came into being; I was involved in a matter in the High Court in Cape Town where a grandmother wanted to exercise rights of access to her two grandchildren but because of an argument with her daughter, the mother of the children, she was being denied access to her grandchildren, Quite rightly she was not prepared to let that happen and took her daughter to the High Court in an Application to get a court order allowing her access to her grandchildren and she got such an order; which was unusual at the time for the reasons given below.

I remembered this case when I got the following inquiry in this last week which is in a similar vein and the facts were strangely similar.
