Question posted in the Property Law category relating to Free State

Good evening I have a question regarding renting a residence. 

The owner gave us eviction notice of 2 weeks to move out off the house we are renting , I just want to find out how long of notice we are suppose to receive, we are renting from him 3 and a half months, my brother was late for January rent due to the fact that his bank account was hacked and I formed the owner he will pay a bit late for he will be lending money from work to pay the rent.

The owner informed him not to pay he will just take it from the deposit and we must move out by the 20 th of February.  We never even received a contract since we moved in on the 1 st of November 2022.

Please can you help me.
