1.1 PIE (Prevention of Illegal Eviction and Unlawful Occupation of Land Act 19 of 1998)

We specialize in evictions, residential as well as commercial and assist all registered owners/landlords and estate agencies in evicting their problem tenants.

We also act on behalf of companies such as Rentshield and Tenrisk, who insure the Landlords against defaulting tenants.

We are the appointed eviction attorneys who in turn see to it that the eviction process is carried out quickly and professionally.

Please feel free to contact us to discuss the various options and the costs involved.

1.2 ESTA (Extension of Security of Tenure Act No. 62 of 1997)

These evictions can be a lengthy and expensive process and often time with the end goal not being achieved by either party. Our clients agree that we have created a unique and speedy solution to the so-called ESTA-Ghost. This solution makes it possible for the farm owner as well as the farmworker, to walk away from the process with a sense of achievement.

Please contact us to learn more about the process.

* Kindly take notice that the first telephonic consultation on either of the above is FREE.
