Cancellation of contracts by e-mail and digital signatures

SCA finds contract cancellation by e-mail and digital signatures valid
On 21 November 2014, the Supreme Court of Appeal ruled that oral negotiations between parties that have been reduced to writing in the form of emails constitute an agreement to cancel their written agreements.

Also, the SCA has found that typewritten names of the parties at the foot of emails constitute ‘data’ that is logically associated with the data in the body of the emails, as envisaged in the definition of an ‘electronic signature’ [which is not to be confused with an advanced electronic signature]. These, therefore, satisfy the requirement of a signature and have the effect of authenticating the information contained in the emails. ► Download the judgment in Spring Forest Trading 599 CC v Wilberry (Pty) Ltd T/A Ecowash and Another Case No: 725/13 here.

Property developers have been hampered by the challenge to deliver a house under the price range of R300 000.00 to make use of the FLISP subsidy and this prevents many aspiring home owners to buy their own homes.

Good news:

The Director General published enhancements to the Financial Linked Individual Subsidy Plan (FLISP) with the view to have a positive effect on the participating number of affordable households and thus address then need of households in the affordable market with specific reference to:
• The minimum subsidy payable
• The maximum property value
• The housing typology

HOME LOAN DECLINED – Rent2buy as alternative solution

There is hope for those who desperately want to buy a house even if their home loan application has been declined, according to property attorney Meyer de Waal.

De waal, who is the director at Oosthuizen & Co Meyer de Waal, told Fin24 in a video interview that there is a way for consumers to still get a bond even if they have been turned down by banks.

He said usually when a bond application is rejected; it is based on a client’s poor credit scorecard.

“Why do you need a bank from day one to conclude your transaction? Everyone is so fixed on going to a bank to get a home loan. We say, park the bond or the bank a little bit outside for a year or two.

“You’ve got a willing seller, you’ve got a willing buyer and you’ve got a property. Those are the most important ingredients to negotiate a transaction,” said De Waal

Meyer de Waal, who developed and fine-tuned the rent2buy concept was recently interviewed by Fin24. To follow the interview click here

Gem for sale on the Overberg

We assisted the original owner to lay out various units on their farm outside Greyton.

Over the past years one of the owners designed and constructed beautifully newly built luxury destination situated in the Heuningkloof Wine Estates, with just a 10 minute drive from Greyton.  Nestled in its own valley, enjoyed by unparalleled 360 degree panoramic views of the Riviersonderend Mountains and undulating farmlands of the Overberg.

The owners decided to retire and relocate to the UK due to health reasons and this remarkable property is now for sale.

In these peaceful surroundings, old friends and new guests can enjoy their dream home offering of 3 beautifully appointed luxury bedrooms within the farm house, all with private entrances and stunning views.  Guests will be spoilt with the famous breakfasts on the stoep, next to the pool or in inclement weather, in the GRAND dining room in front of a roaring fire and pampered with country hospitality and warmth.

In just one year, thanks to its unique undisturbed location, coupled with imaginative planting and creative landscaping, it has attracted and permanently adopted a broad section of wild life from Reebok to Golden Mongoose, a myriad of water birds regularly visit their ponds and a family of Blue Crane stay. This can all be viewed from the house. Being part of the beautiful Heuningkloof boutique Wine Estate, you can  share in wonderful fishing, picnic and swimming facilities on the private owned banks of the Sonderend River.  (Picnic hampers will be made up, just organise your own food). The area is fast establishing its facilities and location as a mountain bikers dream!
