I am renting out my spare bedroom to a woman and her child after she told me her husband had left her and she had nowhere to go. I subsequently found out that she had left him.
We have had payment problems because after initially discussing a monthly rental of R1 200, she asked for a weekly rental and we agreed on an amount of R425.
One month there were five Fridays and she did not want to pay for the fifth Friday as she said she would be paying more overall for that month than the initially discussed monthly rental. I agreed to give her one week’s free accommodation.
Furthermore, the husband comes to visit his child every weekend, but instead the couple end up fighting with each other, causing a lot of tension in the house for me and my child.
I want to terminate the rental agreement and would like advice on how I can go about resolving this unpleasant situation.
