Consumer Credit Regulation in South Africa deals with the South African law concerning consumer credit. As the National Credit Act is not the only statute that governs consumer credit agreements, other legislation that either governs or influences consumer credit agreements is also considered, particularly the Alienation of Land Act 68 of 1981 and the Consumer Protection Act 68 of 2008. Part A of the book provides a complete discussion of the National Credit Act, and Part B considers the interplay between the National Credit Act, the Alienation of Land Act and the Consumer Protection Act. A supplementary CD comprising relevant legislation and regulations, and the guidelines of the National Credit Regulator, is included.
