We live abroad and rent out our property in Durban. It is managed by a local agent. He leased the property to a tenant who suddenly vacated with arrear rental of 3 months including considerable damage to the property. We have been able to recover part of the shortfall from the deposit. However can we claim the balance and the cost of repair from the negligent agent?
