Question posted in the General Law category relating to Gauteng

I need help. My co owned property was sold within the last 4 months. I was informed that I would be able to sign a acknowledgement of debt on the left over amount by the property agent and lawyer. 2days ago I was informed by my co owner that I owe her an amount of R75 000 because her family members settled the entire amount of R150 000 in January and I wasn't informed untill 2 days ago.

I did not ask nor did I know of any payments that they made. I am now being threatend with court and lawyers if I dont agree to pay the amount? I do not have the money to pay for lawyers to defend my case and I am clueless as to the SA law regarding this matter.
