According to the court documents seen by Sunday World, it said that Teko had signed an offer of R 1050 000 to purchase a house in Eastleigh suburb in Edenvale, east of Johannesburg, in July 2008.
“In terms of clause 7 of the offer to purchase, the defendent is liable to pay the plaintiff, as estate agent, an amount of R 80 000.”
Hometown’s lawyers said Teko had no interest in paying the commission.
“To date, despite demand attached, the defendent has failed and or, alternatively, neglected and or, alternatively, refused to make payment to the plaintiff for the amount as aforesaid” read the summons.
The magistrates court granted the judgement saying they should seek further and or alternative means to recover their money from Teko.
