The courts would consider an alleged breach in the lease and the construction of a clause contravened by the lease „depends on the consideration of the nature, effect and extent of the lease and the operation of the parts of the lease“ (Protea Assurance Co Ltd/Presauer Developments Ltd 1985 (1) SA 737 (A)). A landlord may also completely terminate a tenancy agreement due to a significant or material breach and have the tenant removed immediately. Suppose your owner ignores the message, and your electrical systems spend weeks – or even months – without repair. Many tenants think they can withhold their monthly rent until the landlord solves the problem. Unfortunately, this could be contrary to their rental agreement (since it probably contains a one-time rent payment clause) and the landlord may have reason to evict them. A tenant can terminate the tenancy agreement directly for a major violation and thus terminate the lease. In addition to non-payment of rents and other breaches of the lease, the abandonment of land leased by a tenant may constitute a fundamental violation of the lease which may give the lessor a number of remedies and possibly additional remedies available to the lessor under the tenancy agreement. A breach occurs when, in an agreement, one or more parties do not stop terminating a good deal by not fulfilling, in one way or another, their contractual obligations. If the contract is terminated, the first step is to have a formal debate on the treaty and the current situation. Previous communications on this subject may have emerged and have not resulted in any approach.
In these cases, either the landlord or tenant can call a mediator to help them steer the conversation in a useful direction without it being biased itself. Sometimes these issues can be dealt with outside a court of law by simply having a conversation about expectations, government rent laws and guidelines set out in the tenancy agreement. In addition to the aforementioned rights and remedies, many commercial leases also allow the landlord to charge the tenant because of the legal costs incurred to enforce the tenancy agreement as well as interest on the outstanding sums and recover them against the tenant. A serious offence would be that the owner does not provide the apartment on the agreed date or refuses to do so. A tenant may have at least three options in the event of dismissal due to injury: the tenant may ignore the dismissal and continue to occupy the apartment, with a huge risk if a violation has actually been committed; Accept that he or she violated the lease and evacuate the apartment; or accept termination (as a refusal of contract) and sue for damages (Van Zyl/Rossouw 1976 (1) SA 773 (NC)). As a tenant of a rental property, you have the right to consider your lease as breached if the landlord does not comply with one of the provisions of your tenancy agreement. For example, most homeowners are required to continue to maintain their real estate in order to maintain the space at the level agreed upon in the contract. If z.B.
Your landlord has ignored your requests for critical repair or if accidental damage (i.e. weather-related damage) has been caused to the property and the owner has not yet resolved the problem, you may be able to submit claims. A material offence must be quite serious. For example, an owner who shows up once in your property without informing you properly may have breached the agreement, but this is not really a significant offence. However, an owner who regularly enters your property without notice may have significantly violated the contract.
