Property owners beware - You could owe your council thousands
Bowman Gilfillan property lawyer and director Bobby Bertrand says the Supreme Court of Appeal (SCA) has given a shocking ruling for home owners.
JOHANNESBURG - If you own a property you'll want to read this and listen to Talk Radio 702's interview with Bobby Betrand, Bowman Gilfillan director and property lawyer - it could save you thousands of rand and a whole lot of headaches.
Last month, the Supreme Court of Appeal ruled that new property owners can be held liable for historic debts dating back three decades.
That means you could be forced to pay debts you didn't incur - and no one wants that.
The matter has been referred to the Constitutional Court.
