I deal with many young people, and they often bring me all their problems. Finding this forum so far has been god-sent, and I thank those who are able to respond!
One such young couple have hit on hard times, and the husban no longer received overtime. I have been told them that they simply need to downgrade. In December the moved into a townhouse and signed a year lease. The lease agreement states that if they move out before the lease is over they lose their deposit, which is equal to 2 months rent (R13000.00).
What legal options do they possibly have to also ensure they get their deposit back?
