Message from the Lawyer
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, even if it is R150 or R200.
If the "new owner" arrives and tries to kick you out, you must go to the SAPS and lay a complaint against the people, saying that they have no rights to kick you out because they are not the registered owner of the property! The SAPS must come to assist and arrest the people for intimidation, assault, or trespassing.
Only the registered owner can kick you out, and only through the court's eviction application.
Nobody is allowed to take the law into their own hands to kick you out.
Please remember this is a dialog if you have follow-up questions please make the required deposit, 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 deposits for their questions - they get serviced first!
