Question posted in the Landlord Tenant Law category relating to KwaZulu-Natal
We rented a warehouse in 2008 all monthly rental was up to date. We did sign a 2 year lease. We did not renew lease.
Every rent increase landlord did in writing and we paid according.
In 2016 landlord gave us written notice to leave.
He was selling property.
We asked for grace period until we find a place or he gets buyer.
In 2018 we vacated the premises.
This month we find a summons attached to our fence.
Landlords claims we didn't pay him 10% increase yearly. Yet he gave us written notice increases
He's claiming a huge amount plus interest.
We have not been working for 3 years.
We've been unwell and also covid effected us.
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.
It sounds like your landlord is grasping at straws in his claims!
The one thing that you must keep in mind is that his claims can only go back 3 years, to the day. Claims before then are un-enforceable.
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.
