Who i can hold liable for my loss or property between owner and security company
I live in cape town , Parkland . My apartment complex advertises gated community, with active security guard patrolling the grounds and cctv camera which was not working a time of crime. They stole some of my property Do I have any grounds to hold the complex liable for my loss of property?
I have filed a police report, and unfortunately I don’t have insurance. or where to go for my complain. Thanks in Advance
If the body corporate undertook responsibility for the safety and security of properties inside the complex and that at the time of the theft, it can be shown that the security guards acted negligently by abandoning their duty posts and possibly interfered with the CCTV hence the theft, then the body corporate is liable. If not, exercise patience with the police investigation and should the outcome lead to the apprehension of the culprit(s) then you can also sue civilly. Thank you.
