Our Services 

 PERSONAL SERVICE AND ASSISTANCE

Because of the entrance of debt councillors after the introduction of the National Credit Act (the Act) and interpretation of the Act by magistrates, attorneys and the National Credit Regulator and other bodies, most of our time the past two years was devoted to personal service and assistance where:   

·       Businesses were threatened with closure because of alleged contraventions or non-compliance of conditions of the Act.

·       Magistrates rejected requests for judgments in cases of default repayments of credit agreements because of their interpretation of the Act. 

·         Liaison with the National Credit Regulator (NCR) on behalf of members in matter affecting their registration as credit providers.

·         Investigation, compile and presenting of opposing arguments or plead arguments where members were charged by the NCR of misconduct under the Act.

In all the above cases our actions were successful and businesses exist today; and the financial wellness of others ensured because of our help and assistance.
