kicked out immediately
Signed an agreement with the landlord moved in on the 2nd of October 2017 paid Deposit of R5500 and rent of R5500. Was told to vacate the premises on 16th October 2017 with no written notice, so i did so when asked why breach of contract…. not telling her i lost my job even though i could still make payments. been struggling to get my deposit back…. what are my rights here surely she should pay back half a months rent as well as my deposit its been over 60 days and still nothing…… what should i do next
Dear Nathania L, please note that you are correct and that the landlord/lady needs to reimburse you immediately with outstanding rent money and the deposit if the property was in the same condition as hired by you when you moved out. Was there a written lease? You now need to immediately send a final letter of demand for the moneyies owing and inform her that you are taking the matter further with the Rental and Housing Board in her area if she fails to pay up in 3 days as stipulated in your letter of demand.

Dear Nathania L, I inferred as much. I advise you recheck the basis of refunding of the deposit in the lease agreement as well as the landlady’s notice period in respect of the cancellation of the lease or just the cancellation thereof. From your submissions it is obvious the landlady is in breach however check anyway and place her in contractual breach with your final letter of demand and as already advised with reference to report her failures to honour the contract to the Rental and Housing Commission.
