Sunday World reports that popular Mamelodi Sundowns striker Anthony Lafor is about to lose his house and two cars due to default on his three loans from FNB and Nedbank.

The publication adds that FNB and Nedbank applied for default judgments against the footballer in the Johannesburg High Court two weeks ago on August 18.

According to court documents, Lafor obtained a loan of R935 000 on 9 July 2018 to buy his 2018 Ford Everest 2.2 TDCI XLT model and is expected to pay R11 500 monthly for 69 months and over R122 000 final installment on 25 July 2024 .

FNB is said to have taken Lafore to court after he failed to make payments, failed to return the vehicle on April 1 and was under R90 000 in arrears.

“The defendant is in arrears as at 18 August 2021 in the amount of R88 571.48 with a total outstanding balance of R479 221.53,” the documents read.

Nedbank claims they gave Laffor and his partner Anita Tshabalala a R2 million loan for their Edenvale property in Gauteng as security and both agreed to pay R22 000 monthly for 240 months.

The publication added that Lafore and his partner last paid the bank on October 28, 2020, and the bank is preparing to auction his house for 2.4 million rand.

“The current assessed value of the mortgaged property is R2.4 million, made up of a land valuation of R450 000 and improvements valued at R1,950 000,” the documents read.

According to Sunday World, the attacker confirms he has loans from the banks, has informed his legal team to handle the cases as he was surprised when he was taken to court.

“It is a small sum, my brother, that I can afford to pay them. The problem is that the car you are talking about was involved in an accident when my wife was driving it. I don’t know what happened after that, but I will pay the balance,” he said

The soccer star is also said to have taken out a loan for R488 000 on his 2019 Mazda CX5 2.5L and is expected to pay just under R10 000 per month over a period of 72 months and has over R35 000 in arrears as of March 2021 .

“The first respondent has breached the provisions of the installment agreement as no installments have been paid by the respondent since 31 December 2020,” the papers said.

The bank also says it gave the soccer star a 100,000 rand overdraft, with the last payment of 3,000 rand made on December 8, 2020.
