I had the most amazing chat with Elize le Roux, MD of Xpello, to get her views on this question . . .
Elize shared a lot of very useful – and, more importantly, PRACTICAL – advice and insights on this extremely pertinent topic.
Some of the highlights . . .
- the importance of following due process, including that all-important Letter of Demand
- the practicalities of lease cancellation & evictions under Lockdown . . . and beyond
- practical considerations – and possible new timeframes to expect – for eviction applications post-Lockdown
- practical alternatives to lease cancellation & evictions
Elize told me that Xpello has been able to successfully negotiate practical alternative solutions to the formal eviction process in 85+% of the eviction matters that they have dealt with – so there definitely are alternatives!
