When 22-year old lumber worker Garet got married after four years of dating, he never expected to be a single dad in a matter of months. “It started going downhill after one year,” he tells me, “and we got divorced just after.” With extra free time on his hands and looking to spend more time with his son, he downloaded TikTok in early 2018. He spent months on the app watching videos and making a few of his own. Then he had an idea about how to quell the pain of his ongoing divorce proceedings while investing in his new [...]

Co-authored by James Morrison, Ashfords LLP Access to justice as a corner stone of the legal profession is recognised as a basic human right in most jurisdictions. It is synonymous with effective access to courts and recognises that everyone is entitled to the protection and effective enforcement of the law. The barriers to access to justice from a South African and UK perspective are distinct, yet similar in that it is often treated as a commodity and remains available to a select few, often to the exclusion of the poor. We discuss a few common barriers to access in South [...]

While dealing with arrears of rent is a well-worn path for landlords, where a tenant of a commercial property is in breach of its lease for any reason other than the non-payment of rent, the process is not so straightforward. First, a landlord is obliged to issue a notice before taking any enforcement action. The purpose of the notice is to identify the breach/breaches and to call on the tenant to remedy them. The notice procedure is provided for in legislation dating back to 1881. While the legislation is very old, the requirements prescribed by it remain. The notice must [...]

For a variety of reasons, Scotland lags behind many other nations when it comes to the use of mediation to resolve disputes, despite the substantial cost and time that often comes with litigation. In Scotland, rather than seeing litigation as a last resort to resolving disputes, it is the route many people decide to take from the outset.
