Question posted in the Property Law category relating to Western Cape
I purchased a property and the transfer was registered on 07/12/2021. The sellers asked to stay on until 31/12/2021 and the attorney subtracted the pro rata occupational rent amount. It states on the OTP that the sellers needs to clean up the property inside and out, however, the property is still very much in a mess and full of rubble. My concern is that the sellers will move out and leave the place in a mess. The sellers were running a small sewing business from home and it seems like they used their backyard as a dumping place for all their material offcuts. I communicated my concern to the attorney twice with no response regarding the matter from them. I also told the estate agent about my concern and she said that she will make sure that they clean up. Why dont i believe that. What can i do, please advice....

Honestly, I don't think that there is a lot you can do at the moment except to remind them of their obligation to tidy up the place before they move out. At the moment, they have not breached the sale agreement. It appears that you are just worried that they won't clean up, but they haven't given you any indication that they will leave the place in a mess- have they?
