Question posted in the General Law category relating to Western Cape
I bought my mothers house.I payed the money to the attorneys.The amount was R150 000.00.I payed for the transaction as it was justvover R11 000.00.
They payed the money into their account,than we realized it was only R126 770.00,but should have been R150 000.00.
We ask where the rest of the money.They said that my mother had 2 previous files.
Nevertheless,they never discussed it with here,never send her a letter of demand or any kind of proof that she owes them.
I payed for a previous case of my mother,but it were handled of.we dont know of any files.
If she owed them,can they deduct money with out my mothers concent?Can they do any such?As the money were just enough to build her a small house.
Please help thank you.
