General

Evictions can often become expensive, frustrating, and at worst, a fruitless undertaking. That’s why Xpello has brought together a team of experienced professionals who have developed an innovative, affordable, legal solution for landlords and rental agents, created specifically to simplify the eviction process when tenants refuse to keep to their side of a rental agreement. More often than not, property owners and rental agents take all the necessary precautions to ensure the tenant signing the lease is reliable and capable of meeting their obligations. But despite proper vetting and confirmation of references, it still happens that the tenant defaults. As an agent or landlord, one can issue a Letter of Demand and cancel the lease. But then what?

 

If an attorney is approached a deposit is required and legal fees of at least R30 000.00 to R80 000.00 will need to be paid. The owner must decide which steps to take and where to find an attorney to attend to the matter. Once the process begins, it needs to be managed. But how does one know if the correct procedure is being followed?

Xpello exists to give agents and landlords an edge by managing the eviction process and costs on their behalf. An attorney specialising in evictions will be appointed by Xpello to attend to the matter – and the attorney will report to Xpello. Because of our extensive experience and skills base, Xpello is able to ensure all processes are dealt with, timeously and correctly.

THE LANDLORD’S DILEMMA

Landlords seldom have the time to attend to litigation and often suffer avoidable damages when left to their own devices whilst dealing with delinquent tenants. They usually need someone to manage the legal processes on their behalf.

 

All too often, during an eviction process, attorneys do not provide sufficient feedback to clients regarding the process, and clients do not know if delays are just because of unforeseen circumstance or the attorney’s own incompetence.

 

Landlords have no means to determine in advance whether the legal costs they are quoted, or charged for, are fair or realistic and can easily end up paying much more than they would otherwise be obliged to.

Our vast experience in the complex field of eviction legislation helped us identify some of the obstacles often encountered by Landlords.

 

Landlords expect Managing Agents to evict defaulting tenants as part of their service while Managing Agents do not have the authority, knowledge or the systems to execute evictions. When appointing an attorney, the Landlord is often uninformed as to the attorney’s level of proficiency to efficiently and cost-effectively execute evictions.

 

Spawned from the dilemma facing Landlords and Property Investors in general, Xpello was founded to act as an intermediary when Landlord meets Law. Our services include:

 

  • Informing and educating Landlords regarding the feasibility and legality of the various lease agreements proliferated across the industry and which are accepted by the courts.

  • Stepping in once the tenants breached the lease agreement with additional demand and conversations in an attempt to resolve the matter amicably. 

  • Cancelling the lease agreements should the breach not be remedied.

  • Proceeding with an eviction application on behalf of the client. Clients thus do not need to be involved in the legal process and only receive feedback from Xpello as received from the Attorneys and the Courts.

  • Once the eviction order is obtained, Xpello will furnish the client with the details of the sheriff and a

  • Warrant of ejectment to arrange for the eviction of the tenant should the tenant vacate voluntarily.

  • Should the Occupants appeal the eviction order, Xpello will refer the client to a specialist property firm to attend to the appeal and arrange a discounted fee with the attorneys on the Landlord’s behalf.

  • Should our client want to proceed with rental collections, an application to disconnect the utilities or a transfer of a property, the attorneys on our panel will furnish our clients with discount.
