Question posted in the Landlord Tenant Law category relating to Mpumalanga
I have an eviction question I need advice on please.
We had moved into a company house roughly 2 years ago. It was part of my husbands income package.
During Covid 19 he was retrenged and part of the retrenged agreement we were supposed to have the option to rent after a 3 month period. Now the option to rent has been taken away.
We got notice to move out by the end of January but living in a small town there are no houses available to rent at the monent. We have asked for more time but was threatend with attorneys and legal costs.
I have no idea what the law is around these circumstances.
Please can you advice me on what my rights are and how to proceed.
Answer to the Question
I see that you haven't made a payment for the question, but I'm going to assist you a little. If you want to ask a follow-up question, please make the required payment.
If part of the agreement was that he would have an option to rent, then he is entitled to demand the company keep to the agreement. He can say to the company, I don't accept that you've taken the option away, and I want to accept the option and I won't be moving out. But then he needs to tender rental to the company.
Please remember this is a dialog if you have follow-up questions please make the required payment, then use the REPLY button and ask your further question. I would like to continue assisting you, but I need to concentrate on people who make payments for their questions.
