Kermit Erasmus Blacklisted cars
Early this year, the famous footballer’s car was repossessed after the bank listed it among Standard bank repossessed cars. The bank repossessed the luxury SUV, auctioned it after he failed to keep his end of the bargain in paying up his monthly installments. The bank also went a step further to apply for a judgment ruling against the player at the Gauteng High Court so that he can be blacklisted.
According to information on documents from court, the famous footballer received a car loan worth R1, 285,304.76 from Standard Bank in 2013. He was to purchase an Audi Q73.0 TDI Quattro. His agreement with the bank was that he would be paying a monthly installment amounting to R16, 148.27, for a period of 60 months, a deal that he failed to keep. The bank repossessed the car in January 2018 and auctioned it for R248, 400. That amount was credited to his account, and he was expected to pay up the balance of R338, 679.69.
The bank hopes that they will get a fair judgment so that the footballer can pay up the balance, including an interest of 10.25 percent per annum, a tempore morae as well as the cost of the attorney. The renowned footballer was, however, shocked by the bank's decision to seek judgment against him.
