The type of notice that the landlord must serve on you depends upon what type of housing you live in. For example, if you live in conventional public housing, the Housing Authority must give you a 14-day notice in addition to a 5-day notice. The 5-day notice must give you the option to either (a) pay the rent by the end of the 5th day after the notice is given or (b) leave. The 14-day notice should come before the 5-day notice and should mention that you have the right to a grievance hearing. Under certain circumstances, the landlord can combine those two notices or give the 5-day notice before the 14 days expire. These are complicated legal situations and you should call an attorney to assist you with this defense. Other subsidized housing does not require a 14-day notice. For example, if you have a Section 8 Voucher and rent from a private landlord, that private landlord is not required to give you a 14-day notice. All that is required is a 5-day notice. Moreover, a grievance hearing is not required if you live in other subsidized housing or have a Section 8 Voucher. Check A, B, or C, whichever applies to your situation. Note that A requires an explanation. Number 7 This section contains defenses that you have paid or tried to pay your rent. If you paid your rent, check A and fill in the amount you paid and the date you paid. Check 1, 2, 3, and/or 4, indicating how you paid. If you checked 4, "Other," that you paid by another method (e.g., providing agreed upon repairs or improvements), explain in the blank space how you paid the rent.

Explain. Check C if you tried to pay the rent, but the landlord refused to accept it because you refused to pay additional unauthorized charges, like collection fees or attorney fees. Explain Check D if you have made other arrangements, like paying extra to catch the back rent. Explain. Number 8 This sentence states that the amount of the rent which the landlord claims you owe is incorrect. The amount may be incorrect because the landlord made a math error, because the landlord is wrong about the amount which you agreed to pay each month, etc. Also, since you live in public or subsidized housing, the landlord may have calculated your share of the rent incorrectly. This may happen if you recently lost a job or have been cut back on the hours you work. If this happens, you may be entitled to reduced rent. Remember, however, that the landlord is only obligated to recalculate (reduce) your rent if you tell the landlord in writing that your income has decreased. The amount you owe should be reduced in the month following the month you report the decrease in income. (Remember, you also have an obligation to report any increases in your income as soon as you know about them.) Provide an explanation as to why you do not owe the amount.
