Question posted in the Property Law category relating to Gauteng
My father built outside rooms at his family home in the 2008. During that time only his elder brother lived in the main house and the outside rooms my father rented them out for extra income. His brother and him signed a mutual agreement that basically said that the outside rooms are my father's and he built them in his own capacity and that he has full ownership of them and my uncle acknowledged that. My father and his elder brother and their late sister were the only ones appearing in the house permit.
Now my uncle passed away and sadly my father too. Suddenly my other aunt is back living in the family house and claims the house and rooms are hers. It should be noted that she did not appear on the house permit and never lived there until a year ago.
Can we use the mutual agreement my father and his brother signed to show that the outside rooms are my father's and not part of the family house

Well, it really does depend on what the title deed of the property says, and who the registered owner of the house is!
Please remember this is a dialog if you have follow-up questions please make the required payment, then use the REPLY button and ask your further question. I would like to continue assisting you, but I need to concentrate on people who make payments for their questions.
