Media Statement 6 December 2021: Communicare looks forward to the court ruling on the ownership of property

6 December 2021

“The land claims court issued an order on 29 November 2021 compelling the Deeds Office to provide all the documents related to Communicare’s ownership of selected properties.

Communicare looks forward to the court ruling on this matter. It will finally end the speculation and allegations made against Communicare over the last few years, as to its lawful ownership of the relevant properties.

Like all legally registered companies, Communicare is registered and in good standing with the Companies and Intellectual Property Commission (CIPC). Communicare is also in good standing with SARS and conducts an annual audit by an independent audit firm. The organisation is compliant in every respect as a legal entity as confirmed by the audit.

All property owned by Communicare is registered with the Deeds Office.

The fact that this matter is before the court does not mean that tenants don’t have to pay their rent. Communicare advises tenants to continue to pay their rent if they don’t want a bad credit record or face the risk of their arrears being handed over for collection.

Communicare has co-operated fully with the process. Unfortunately, the conclusion of this matter has been delayed due to the effect of the Covid-19 pandemic. We are certain that the Deeds Office will provide all the necessary documents for the court to rule on this matter and bring it to a close.”
