The common law on eviction and rental of immovable property has undergone radical changes since the adoption of the Constitution and a number of subsequent legislative measures. Different statutes apply in different situations, and prescribe divergent and often confusing procedures.
At the same time, this branch of the law has become increasingly relevant, given the overwhelming housing problem that contributes to the increase of informal settlements; the economic downturn that places pressure on the rental market, and the rise in popularity of buy-to-let investment schemes. Eviction and Rental Claims: A Practical Guide aims to practically combine the various measures and to define and explain the common law and statutory measures that govern the law of eviction and rental claims.
