1.1 PIE (Prevention of Illegal Eviction and Unlawful Occupation of Land Act 19 of 1998)

We specialize in evictions, residential as well as commercial and assist all registered owners/landlords and estate agencies in evicting their problem tenants.

We also act on behalf of companies such as Rentshield and Tenrisk, who insure the Landlords against defaulting tenants.

We are the appointed eviction attorneys who in turn see to it that the eviction process is carried out quickly and professionally.

Please feel free to contact us to discuss the various options and the costs involved.

1.2 ESTA (Extension of Security of Tenure Act No. 62 of 1997)

These evictions can be a lengthy and expensive process and often time with the end goal not being achieved by either party. Our clients agree that we have created a unique and speedy solution to the so-called ESTA-Ghost. This solution makes it possible for the farm owner as well as the farmworker, to walk away from the process with a sense of achievement.

Please contact us to learn more about the process.

* Kindly take notice that the first telephonic consultation on either of the above is FREE.

Skyfin Liberty

Because of the well-established relationships Gideon Engelbrecht Inc created over the years, Liberty Skyfin approached our firm to be their “in-house” attorneys at their Stellenbosch branch. We grabbed the opportunity with both hands and we have never looked back!

Being a qualified financial advisor himself, Gideon can provide his clients with, not only specialised legal advice but also assist clients with sound financial advice too.
We have a large overseas client base who make use of the fact that we can legally act on their behalf in South Africa, whilst they are abroad and at the same time make sure that their financial interests are managed.

We feel that this is one of many reasons why our firm is set apart from any standard legal firm out there. Please feel free to click on the Liberty (Skyfin) link to learn more about the services that they provide.
