Q:

I own a small rural property on the outskirts of a small rural community. The house is the former railway masters cottage for the now defunct railway line. The railway line has been recently transformed into a walking trail. A councilor from the local council contacted me yesterday & said that the council has approved plans for a former railway station to be moved immediately adjacent to my house literally meters away as a tourist attraction. Can I stop them?

Hi. My husband and I have agreed to separate after a ten year marriage. For the past five years I have been a business partner for our painting business. Admittedly he put in most of the hard yards and is definitely the boss !! Since I have been his business partner I have not earned a wage yet now he is basically saying I am entitled to nothing financial when I leave. I don't want to take him to cleaners but surely this can't be right ?

Q:

We have an offer on an investment house that we are selling. The buyers have commissioned a building inspection report, at which time the inspector told them that the HWS system was leaking (this is not mentioned in their written report). The special conditions on the O & A state that all plumbing must be in working order. The hot water system is in working order. Do we need to fix the leak or replace the HWS. If the leak cannot be fixed (Solar HWS is very old), do we need to replace it?

Hello

I am managing director of a company in SA.
Basically there are unauthorised creditor invoices that have been entered in to our internal accounting system.
We are not being actively pursued for the money, there is no written legal warnings and the claimed debt may be over a year old in some cases. Is it legal to process a credit in our internal accounting system so risk of inadvertent payment is averted and aged creditor is not exaggerated; without written approval from the Creditor ?

Q:

: I am in a Strata of 6 villas. We have a council of owner of 5 members. The law requests a minimum of 3 members. To fill the 3 positions? Do we have to elect a chairman, a secretary and a treasurer? The existing chairman believes she is the only one elected and can delicate tasks of secretary and treasurer to different members at any time as she field fit. Is that according to law?

Q:

i got pulled over and was told my vehicle was unregistered, they took my plates and gave me a $250 unregistered vehicle fine and $100 return plate failure fine. The vehicle was being transferred to my name from my father in laws and he was paying the transfer fee. Meanwhile i pay the new registration, it gets bounced back a week later with no explanation. I never recieved a '14 day overdue notice' or a letter to advise the car was unlicensed. Do i have a chance to take this to court?

Q:

Dear John,
I wish to put in a second towel rail because I'm disabled with neck arthritis. My landlord is unresponsive. I am straining my neck to reach down to the low rail and wish to put one above it more suitable for my height. Would i be in breach of my contract if i have one put in? Can they evict me even if its identical to the one below and adds value to the property? Thank you for your reply :-)
