Jordaan v City of Tshwane Municipality (74195/2013)  ZAGPPHC
(7 November 2016)
The Municipal Systems Act provides that outstanding debt remains a charge against the land, even after it changes hands. This could have the effect of making a new owner pay for debts the previous owner incurred. The constitutionality of this provision was finally challenged in this matter and the outcome provides relief to property purchasers.
