Question posted in the Landlord Tenant Law category relating to Western Cape
Good day sir/madam
My name is Elliot Gys. Our landlord has sent us a notice from his attorney to vacate his house due to unpaid 2 months rent (R20.000)plus a bill of R5000 that he covered for us as well as R52000 debt since the beginning od lockdown.I sent an email to his attorney but never got an answer. We are willing to pay the R25.000 so long and see how the debt can be repaid.
Would you please advise me on what steps to take?
