WHAT IS
PROPERTY LAW?

South African property law regulates the rights of people in or over certain objects or things. It is concerned, in other words, with a person's ability to undertake certain actions with certain kinds of objects in accordance with South African law. Among the formal functions of South African property law is the harmonization of individual interests in property, the guarantee and protection of individual (and sometimes group) rights with respect to property, and the control of proprietary relationships between persons (both natural and juristic), as well as their rights and obligations. The protective clause for property rights in the Constitution of South Africa stipulates those proprietary relationships which qualify for constitutional protection. The most important social function of property law in South Africa is to manage the competing interests of those who acquire property rights and interests. In recent times, restrictions on the use of and trade in private property have been on the rise.

WHAT IS
CONSUMER
PROTECTION?

The Consumer Protection Act (referred to hereafter as the CPA or “the Act”) intends to regulate the marketing of goods and services to consumers, as well as the relationships, transactions and agreements between the consumers and the producers, suppliers, distributors, importers, retailers, service providers and intermediaries of those goods and services. The purpose of the Act is to ‘promote and advance the social and economic welfare of consumers in South Africa’. Most entities, supplying goods and services in South Africa, as well as the transactions they enter into with consumers will be governed by the Act. The preamble to the Act identifies the need to ensure accessible, transparent and efficient redress for consumers who are subjected to abuse or exploitation in the marketplace.
