Warning for all people looking to rent property

Rusties received info about unsettling things that happened in the property business.

Complaint against: Al-Mar Rentals
Person: Alma du Toit

Here is the story of an unhappy person in Rustenburg.  All Rustenburgers, please see this as a warning to watch out for.

I rented a town house in Rustenburg through Al-Mar rentals. After renting for a year and a half, the owner gave me the option to purchase the property and we signed a purchase contract which at the same time ended the rental contract as the purchase transaction began.

Two weeks ago the property registered on my name, I am the new owner. When the property was successfully registered on my name, I contacted Alma du Toit from Al-Mar Rentals, asking for my deposit which I paid initially upon renting the property. She refused to return my deposit and still hasn’t and she has no grounds whatsoever to do so.

I am the new owner of the property so if there were damages to the property, giving her grounds to deduct from the deposit (if I evacuated as a lessee), it would’ve made sense but it is not applicable. Nevermind refusing to return my deposit for no apparent reason.

I want my money back! “

Advertise your business

Need traffic through search engines like Google, Yahoo, MSN, Ask and more? After all, don’t most of use our computers at home or work to search for businesses, services and products online? We market your keywords and give you the needed exposure to the world, what more of an online presence do you need? Give it a go!

Advertising on the Rusties website is as easy as 1, 2, 3! Really, I’ll walk you through it quick.

Step 1. Decide on an advertisement

Business listing: Our most popular advertisement is the business listing which we recommend to most businesses. Get your official Rustenburg business listed in the biggest online business directory in Rustenburg. You give us your logo, contacts, keywords and a short description and we will build you a spot in the directory.

Banner ad: Additionally, we have banner ads for more exposure on the website with an increased price.

Special/Event: Have a special promotion or an event that you need to market in Rustenburg with a blast? Give us your flyer or announcement for your special/event and we will do just that. A special/event announcement goes onto our home page, goes into our News section, stays in the right-hand sidebar under News Highlights and we also email it to all our email subscribers on our mailing lists.

Job listing: Last but not least, we have job ads specifically aiming at the recruitment market niche and recruitment agencies.

Step 2. Fill in your contract

We have contracts on our website which you candownloaded in .pdf format to print and fill in. Alternatively, we can arrange a meeting with you to settle on an agreement as to which type of ad is the best for you and what optional extras you need on it.

Signing a contract with us won’t hook you onto something you will regret. You can sign for 3, 6, 12 or 24 months so the length is your choice. Thereafter, you may cancel with us provided a written notice and we will respectfully cease your service upon your decision to do so.

The idea and purpose of a contract is to sign a mutually beneficial agreement between you as the client and us, AJH Advertising CC.

Step 3. See the conversion

Once you have chosen on your ad type as mentioned in Step 1 and you have filled in your contract with us, we will publish you on the internet and start building on your keywords to ensure that you periodically receive the needed traffic from our Rustenburg website.

Results vary based on the type of market that you’re in and what the competition on your keywords are in the search engines. But in short, we ensure that it is most effectively marketed  both through search engines and from other channels such as email, Facebook, Twitter and other social networks.
