Question posted in the General Law category relating to Eastern Cape
Hi,In December I stored a bed and a couch at one of my girlfriends family members house, and in March we told my girlfriends parents that they can have the bed and couch if they fetch it from where it is stored. Since then they havent collected it, we have had arguements with my girlfriends parents, and my sister is in the process of getting divorced.We have let my girlfriends parents know that we have decided to give the furniture to my sister since she needs it much more, and it is uncollected. My girlfriends mother is now threatening to have me arrested, and have contacted the family members where the furniture is stored for them not to allow me to collect it.
Am I allowed to collect the furniture? There is no written agreement between us of me giving them the furniture. What can I do legally?Kind Regards,Morne
Answer to the Question
I see that you haven't made a payment for the question, but I'm going to assist you a little. If you want to ask a follow-up question, please make the required payment.
It sounds to me as if you gave them the bed and couch on condition that they collected it, and if they haven't collected it, then they have not complied with the condition, therefore you can withdraw your offer.
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.
