Fixed Term Agreements

  • fixed term lease duration

     If the consumer has not made the election by the expiry date, the agreement will continue automatically on a month-to-month basis.

    Section 14 of The Consumer Protection Act No 68 of 2008 (CPA):

    In our last blog, we looked at the wording of the whole of section 14 (1) and commented on its content and the background to the section.

    Today we will concentrate on section 14 (2) of the CPA and also regulation 5.

  • time termination of lease

    Get insight into both the Common & Consumer Law before terminating a commercial lease agreement earlier

     When one has an issue with a commercial lease agreement and especially where one wants to terminate the agreement early one has to have insight into both the Common Law and Consumer Law.

     During the course of this month, we intend concentration on this aspect of consumer and commercial law.

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

    In the above context and as per our opening statement above; there are two important aspects of the CPA which need to be applied.

  • break a contract 700x350

    All fixed terms agreements only apply to natural people like you and me and not to companies. This is the first important aspect to note.

    On a regular basis, we receive enquiries at The Legal Advice Office about how a consumer can go about terminating a fixed term contract.

    Both the common law and the Consumer Protection Act No 68 of 2008 (CPA) can play a role in this subject; so we thought we would today look at the role of the CPA in this regard.

  • cancel fixed term contarct 

    As a consumer, be sure to calculate the consequences of early cancellation of your contract

     Lease cancellations:

     Section 14 of The Consumer Protection Act No 68 of 2008 (CPA):

    In our last blog, we looked at the wording of the whole of section 14 (2) and commented on its content and the background to the section.

    Today we will concentrate on the whole of section 14 (3) of the CPA and also regulation 5.
