Question posted in the Property Law category relating to Gauteng


So I am in the process of purchasing a property however nowhere in my OTP does it state that the current tenants would be in the property until 31 July 2024. 

According to the transfer lawyers I would be able to send a letter of demand as the seller did not meet the terms. The seller has responded to say that they will not be accepting as according to the OTP I was aware that there was tenants. 

I need advise
