I would like to know if occupancy of a property under south African law is deemed to be 100% of the time (so all days in a calender month) or does the law provide minimum occupancy for example 70% of the time? I am trying to establish when is a person deemed to be a permanent occupant of a property. In this case the agreement dictates if anyone occupies the property permanently other than the agreed occupants when can I exercise my rights that this condition of permanent occupancy has been met if an additional person also occupies the property?
