Agent keeps interest on deposit

Schalk van der Merwe

The payment and return of rental deposits appears to be a hot topic, as another reader has approached the Property Poser panel about getting back the interest on a rather sizeable deposit. The reader explains that, at the inception of his lease, he was obliged to pay a double deposit to the agency acting on behalf of the landlord. He found this odd as he was sharing the dwelling with the landlord and so, presumably, the chances of causing any damage to the dwelling was less likely. The … [Read more...]

A reader writes that his tenant vacated his leased premises during February, which is the shortest month of the year, and did not stay for the full month.

Although he does not give the reasons for the early departure, it … [Read more...]

No transfer duty on inherited property

In the event of death, the executor of the deceased's estate needs to deal with all assets owned by the deceased, says Schalk van der Merwe from Rawson Properties in Somerset West, Cape Town. "It doesn't … [Read more...]
