A new book, Tenant And Landlord In South Africa, by Sayed Iqbal Mohamed and published by the Organisation of Civic Rights (OCR) in Durban, should provide the answer to this and many other tenant-landlord issues such as:
- Tenants living in sectional title schemes;
- House rules;
- The powers of the body corporate in interviewing prospective tenants or its right to restrict the number of occupants;
- Visitation restrictions.
Durban judge Leona Theron says that, "This book will serve as a self-help tool for both tenants and landlords and will certainly have a great impact on its target audience."
The book is available now, directly from the OCR at PO Box 4787, Durban 4000, at R70 including postage. The OCR can be contacted at 031 304 6451.
