Recommendations for amendment to COVID-19 regulation 19 concerning evictions

AFRA endorses the recommendation by the Centre for Applied Legal Studies (CALS) that Regulation 19 be amended to reflect a full moratorium on the institution and hearing of eviction proceedings, as well as the execution of eviction orders and all home demolitions, for the entire duration of Alert Level 4. We accordingly support the proposal that Regulation 19 be replaced in its entirety by the following:
“No person may have their home demolished or be evicted from their place of residence, including in terms of the Extension of Security of Tenure Act 62 of 1997 or the Prevention of Illegal Eviction from and Unlawful Occupation of Land Act 19 of 1998, and regardless of whether it is a formal or informal residence or a farm dwelling, for the duration of the Alert Level 4 period.”
