My land­lord just doesn’t care

The Star Early Edition - - NEWS -

I HAVE a prob­lem with my land­lord. I live in a cot­tage and pay R3 000 in rent. I haven’t had hot wa­ter for the past six months. He says he doesn’t have R3 000 for a new geyser. I shower in the back room in the yard but I worry about safety – I start work at 4am so get up at 2.30am.

He just wants his rent. My basin tap in the bath­room doesn’t have cold wa­ter. He dis­con­nected it, to con­nect his wash­ing ma­chine. The toi­let pipes are con­nected to the basin and kitchen sink. It stinks a lot. M Hadebe
