I am renting a granny flat and the landlord has given me notice to move due to unpaid municipal bills.

In my rental contract it states that i must pay a third of the ethekwini bill. i never receive a bill and get an amount from the neighbour in the main house that he works out himself from the meter reading and not the actual bill.

I have now received notice to move because of non payment of electricity bills but i have been paying more that a 3rds share.

I signed my lease agreement earlier this year, i emailed a copy back to the landlord, and 2 months later he arrives with a different rental contract for me to sign.

What can i do, i am a single mother of 2 and care for my elderly retired mother also.
