Question value: R 100.00
Good Day ,
I have currently moved into a flat in Mindalore ,
and have signed contract's as well i seem to be having a problem with my statement ,
my current rent is R3800 which i have no problem for however i will list what i seem to have a problem with :
I am being charged for water at R316 every month ( Same amount )and according to my landlord its in there clause !
Sewerage - I have called the municipality and the amount i am meant to be paying is R221 but am being charged R241
Basic electricty charge - I am being charged R330.04 every month (Same amount) once again according to my landlord it is according to there clause !
Refuse - I have called the municipality and the amount i am meant to pay is R146 BUT I AM BEING CHARGED R216
Electricity - meter reading's are taken but weirdly no one see's the guys taking the readings and know in Dec 2017 we have been charged and estimate for January 2018 rent - is that even corret ,
i mean how can they give an estimate ? and if i do not use as much electricity ?then what
Then lastly i am being charged R69.55 every month for admin fees ? according the clause once again .
I have queried this with my landlord on email and i was told it is according the the clause i signed ,
I am highly unhappy about this , and when i speak to my neighbours we all are paying almost the same amount but we are all at work ,
so i cannot see how the electricity is being used ?
Please advise me here me here
