Hi there,

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, even if it is R150 or R200.

It sounds as if the letter you received is a straight forward breach letter and your landlord is telling you that at the moment he is just interested in you paying your rental, but that if you fail to pay your rental then he will not hesitate to cancel your lease and eject you from the premises.
