An interdict for what?

You have not asked any specific question. What do you want me to answer?

Can her brother get an interdict to prevent her access to her own property?
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
No not necessary as I have already paid R 400 and still waiting for an answer.

He might be able to get an interdict if she infringes on his rights but it is a difficult remedy he will not get easily. Once again, I do not know what the grounds would be for doing this since you have not mentioned on what grounds but technically it is possible.

If for instance a landlord continues to invade the tenant's privacy, he should be able to get an interdict.

As landlord, she will be able to evict him if she terminates his right to occupy the property.

Please rate my service if you are satisfied or if you have another follow up question, you are welcome to ask.

Regards

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
