The Prevention of Illegal Evictions Act protects the rights of all occupants of land and property, including illegal and unlawful occupants.

The stringent requirements of this Act prevents all unlawful evictions and protects the rights of unlawful occupiers. Late paying tenants are a landlords nightmare, with more often than not the bond payer falling behind on his bond repayments due to late payments by lessees.

With the current stringent laws in place, the lessee becomes the dominant person in the legal relationship with the lessor having to resort to legal action to regain control of his property. We at Bailey Haynes Incorporated are geared to put measures in place to prevent the headaches and loss of income incurred by late paying tenants.
