Appeal date set to obtain clarity on Acting Good Faith

Date: 17 April 2012 - Author: Paul Slot | Back to News

The date for the DCASA sponsored appeal is set for 21 May 2011

Appeal Court made two important findings in the Collette judgement. The first is that a Credit Provider is entitled to terminate after 60 days has expired but the Judgment makes it clear that a Credit Providers failure to participate in good faith may be a basis of a request to a Court not to grant Summary Judgement.  In the Syffert vs. FNB appeal clarity is sought on "Acting in good faith".
