*Act fast if you get a written notice saying you are breaking the rules. If you do nothing by the deadline in the notice, the Housing Authority may then start an eviction lawsuit against you.
In most cases, the notice will give you a deadline (like 10 days) to stop breaking the rules. The notice may say you can ask for a meeting or a "grievance hearing" with the Housing Authority to explain your side.
First, read the notice carefully. If you do not think you are breaking the lease, or you do not understand what the notice says, try to talk to a lawyer. See contact info below.
Next, if you do not agree with the notice, do these things:
Write the landlord to ask for a grievance hearing before the deadline (usually 10 days).
Keep a copy of your letter with your important papers. You will need it later.
