 criminal offence

PRESCRIPTION DOES APPLY IN CRIMINAL CASES, BUT WITH LIMITATIONS AND IMPORTANT EXCEPTIONS FOR SERIOUS CRIMES.

 Prescription of Criminal offences:

 Every so often we get a query about a previous criminal record from a client.

Very often these queries relate to how they can expunge a criminal record from some time ago.

However; we had an interesting inquiry last week.

Essentially the question is about the prescription of criminal offences.

In this blog we will try to answer this question.

 Lease agreement cancellation web

Let me comment in general terms. You cannot just cancel a lease agreement.

The Termination of Commercial and Residential Lease Agreements:

A summary:

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

One of the matters that we specialise in at The Legal Advice Office is Consumer Law and one of the two topics that we concentrate on is lease agreement cancellations and early terminations.

We deal with both residential leases and commercial lease cancellations.

We get many enquiries from tenants who are under considerable financial pressure in these tough economic times who seek our advice and assistance regarding their leases.

Lemon vehicle web

Defective Motor Vehicles:  The choices of a repair, replacement or a refund.

The Consumer Protection Act No 68 of 2008 (CPA).

One of the matters that we, at The Legal Advice Office, specialise in is the topic of defective motor vehicles.

We get many queries at The Legal Advice Office each week from people you want our help regarding the purchase of defective or damaged motor vehicles.

This last week we got a rather cryptic inquiry:

“ I have read in one of your blogs of some time back that if I were to buy a defective motor vehicle, or “ a lemon” as you referred to it as; that I have the choice of a repair, a replacement or a refund at the dealer’s expense. Is this true; and if it is; when and how do I go about doing so; as I have definitely bought “a lemon” from a dealership in Boksburg?”
