New Ventures Consulting & Services (“NVC”), also known as the Municipal Debt Specialist has been driving the above litigation against the respective Municipalities in order to ensure the correct interpretation and implementation of Section 118 of the Municipal Systems Act (“the Systems Act”).

NVC launched and funded these applications on behalf of our clients (against Ekurhuleni Metropolitan Municipality (“EMM”) and the City of Tshwane Metropolitan Municipality (“TMM”) as these municipalities had interpreted s118 in a manner that allowed them to “visit the sins of a predecessor in title upon innocent third parties”. In effect, they attempted to hold the new owner of a property liable for the previous owner’s municipal debt.
