Question posted in the General Law category relating to Gauteng
Goodday. Last year July my partners father passed away whereafter her mother asked us to move to Gauteng to aid her when needed. She also promised my partner that she (mother in law) will give her (my partner) the home baking business so we will have an income. In this time we bought her car from her on downpayment as we can afford. In the past few weeks we have been threatened with her taking the car back. Slandered on Facebook and to anybody that will listen to her. It's at a point where we feel our lifes are in danger. Been kicked out for no reason. Shes taken the business out from under us. My partners middle child was brought her without our consent as we know shes emotionaly and verbally abusive to her. What can we do?
