The Institute of Estate Agents, Western Cape will host a Legal Property Rental and Evictions workshop on April 12 at their training centre in Sheldon Way, Pinelands. This will run from 10am to 2pm, with the doors opening for registration at 9:30am.

This half day workshop is run by Cilna Steyn, a specialist in this field and author of Property Rental and Eviction – The Landlord’s Guide. Steyn’s practise is in Johannesburg and her book is available to purchase through IEASA for R165. This workshop is the second in a five part series and will provide valuable insight for agents, to help them support and assist landlords dealing with a tenant they have to evict.

“The eviction process can be lengthy and complicated, so when a specialist in this field offers her insight into an efficient way to deal with it, agents should take the opportunity to learn from her,” says Annette Evans, general manager of the Institute, Western Cape.

The session will cover the eviction process, with topics such as:

  • Which eviction legislation fits the situation;
  • What process to use and which court;
  • Eviction application;
  • Unopposed evictions;
  • Opposed evictions;
  •  Flow of the eviction process;
  • Possible grounds of opposing eviction (defenses);
  • Section 4 (6) – equity provisions; and
  • Execution of the eviction order.

The cost for the half day workshop is R850 plus VAT for non-member and R650 plus VAT for members.

As seating is limited and preference will be given Institute members, agents are advised to book and pay for their seat as soon as possible. To book, go here.

E-certificates for Continuous Professional Development (CPD) points will be issued for four non-verifiable points.
