Leagle Search is a powerful search engine for finding South African law relevant to your statement. However, since the prompt given by users can vary wildly, the results may vary wildly as well. This means that it is important to use the service with caution. Keep in mind that Leagle Search does not provide legal advice in any capacity. It is strictly for informational or research purposes only.

Leagle Search is a great resource for anyone who needs to quickly understand what South African laws may apply to a situation. Whether you are an individual or a business, Leagle Search can help you find the information you need quickly and easily.

Here are a few examples

Prompt: I lent my friend Person B a sum of money for his business two months ago and he has yet to pay me back. He is now ghosting me. 

Response: In South Africa, this could be seen as a breach of a contract. The statement implies that there was an agreement between Person A and Person B, in which Person A lent money to Person B and Person B agreed to pay back the money. If Person B fails to meet his obligation to repay the money, this would be a breach of contract and Person A could take legal action. Additionally, the fact that Person B is now “ghosting” Person A could be seen as an act of bad faith on Person B’s part, and could be grounds for further legal action.

Prompt: I bought a car from Person B but the vehicle is still registered to person C. There are problems with the car, can I ask for a refund if it’s a private sale.

Response: This statement implies that Person B is not the legally registered owner of the car and so any sale between Person B and another party would be illegal in South Africa. The sale of a vehicle must be done by the legally registered owner and any sale made by someone who is not the registered owner would be a breach of the National Credit Act. Furthermore, the sale of a car by someone who is not the registered owner means that the person asking for a refund would not have a valid claim against the seller since the seller does not have the authority to sell the vehicle.

Prompt: I am currently in a dispute with a former tenant of mine. They have failed to pay rent for the last three months and are now refusing to move out of the premises. I want to change the locks and lock them out.

Response: This statement breaks the Prevention of Illegal Eviction from and Unlawful Occupation of Land Act (PIE) which is a South African law designed to prevent landlords from evicting tenants without following the proper legal steps. Changing the locks and locking out the former tenant would constitute an unlawful eviction and could result in criminal charges and/or civil liability. The landlord must first issue a notice to vacate, then apply to the court for a court order to evict the tenant, and finally enlist the assistance of the South African Police Service to carry out the eviction.
