COVID 19 landlords tenants

Today; I am going to continue with the theme of Lease Agreements in this time of Lockdown.

We are still at level 4.

It is a tough time for both landlords and tenants.

As a specialist consumer lawyer, I try, at all times, to use alternative dispute resolution procedures to resolve disputes between parties and this also applies to lease agreements.

One of those tools is mediation.

Lease Agreements: Landlord versus tenant: 2020.

I have received dozens of queries since the 26th March 2020 and the start of the official lockdown which relates to what the law has to say about certain aspects of Lease Agreements and the Corona Virus pandemic.

 On Friday last week; I received an email which read:

 “If I have bought a defective, or a previously accident damaged, vehicle; what are my consumer rights and how do I enforce them?”

 This is simply a question but the answer to it; not so simple.

Firstly, you have certain common law rights eg not to be sold a defective “merx” (Item).

However, you also have legislation which protects you In the form of the Consumer Protection Act No 68 of 2008 (CPA)

Your remedies in terms of that Act are set out in Chapter 3.
