Question posted in the General Law category relating to Gauteng
My ex partner wanted to have some cosmetic dental work done and because he was not employed at the time, I took out a loan of R80 000 on my name to assist him. The loan was approved in October 2019 and he had the dental work done. Our agreement was that I will pay the loan until he finds employment or his sister pays back money he borrowed her (which ever comes first). He subsequently got permanent job in March/April 2020 and his reason for not paying the loan was that he was waiting on his sister to pay him back. I have tried multiple times to ask him to pay the installments (R3000) or settle the loan (I am only expecting him to pay the balance which is just over R60 000 at present).
I have a proof of payment from Medifin to the Practice with the reference that the money is for his procedure. I also have email corresponce with the Practice of the payments made and scheduling the appointment for him.
Would you be able to assit with above?
The second matter you might not be able to help with but your advise would be appreciated. During our almost 8 year relationship, I have sent a large amount of money to him for "our savings", I have some proof of payments but not everything. Is there any way that I can claim back a portion of this as I have also asked him about the money and he comes up with excuses every time.
We were never married but were together for just over 7 years.
