Good day

I currently have a situation where I applied to purchase a vehicle at a car dealership of which my application was unsuccessful.They then offered me a leasing contract with their sister company of which the first 3yrs would be a leasing contract and thereafter another 3yrs would be a rent to own contract. Now that the 3 yrs has passed by they advised that they can no longer offer the rent to own contract as they no longer have that option available. I have been struggling for almost a year to get the rent to own contract from them. Each time I enquire, their response is either they currently don’t have that option available or it is not a viable option. I have approached the Auto Mobile Ombudsmen and NCR but unfortunately they cannot assist as this is not within their jurisdiction. In the meantime I saw the same company advertising rent to own cars on their website whereas they told me this option is not available but will contact me as soon as it is. Of which they still didn’t.
Their sister company that I initially signed up with, no longer has a website and as an existing client I can no longer log in to my online profile and it seems that they are solely operating under the new group name now. What am I to do in this situation as I constantly have to extend the lease agreement in order not to “lose” the car? Now they also sent me an e-mail to extend my lease but must do so for minimum 2 years whereas they are advertising rent to own options on their website.

This is not fair practise as they are currently advertising on their website that they have rent ot own options available but are not offering me this even though this was the initial agreement when I signed up. Why I don’t know as I have never defaulted and stuck to the terms and conditions during the 3yrs.

Regards

I had medical aid conributions deducted from Oct 2018 – Dec 2018, and the fund knew that my benefits would not be reinstated but still accepted the contribution. They have double standards and used more than R 17 000.00 of my money for services I didn’t have access to. Furthermore, this left me without medical aid cover and suffered tremendously in emergencies and times of requiring the assistance of a GP or even a painkiller. 

I would like to know if I can claim against this scheme for the following :

1) Refund of my contributions

2) Medical fees incurred (hospitalization) as well as setbacks when I couldn’t take my family cos I had no money and no medical aid yet the scheme was deducting from my salary.

3) setbacks – ie. loans, uber rides, telephone costs.

4) pain & suffering

Good Day

I bought a bed at a manufacturer in Cape Town. The bed hurt my back and ribs. Since then they have swapped out different beds about 4 times but these beds are still hurting me. They refuse to refund my money. (R6700) is there anything in the consumer protection act that can assist me to return their bed and get my money back?

I financed a vehicle in June last year and in December the motor blew. I have a warranty policy however it will not fully cover the damage. There is evidence that the motor has been previously tampered with and the vehicle is “said” to have full service history and no previous accidents or faults

Hi there, we are a non profit organisation with retirement villages. SABC (Nudebt) claims that we owe them some money for a property that we sold in 2006. Due to staff changes, the account was never cancelled with them. When we received notification of this account we sent through notice to cancel the account. But they say we must still pay.  Does debt expire after 12 years, and should we be liable for a service not received?
