on 12/18 slipped under my door was a 10day eviction notice. On 12/20 I found a certified letter in my mail box.. according to the tracking # it was left on 12/18 It was the same 10 day notice. The landlord has received a portion of what is due. I am able to pay the outstanding portion by 12/27. What can I do? I reside in NYCHA. I have 3 children and no other adults in home.
I do not practice this type of law. However, all days, including weekends and holidays count towards the 10 days.

Dear NYCHA Tenant
Explain the 10 day notice. There is no way to know what you meant. A rent demand is 14 days notice. Before a rent demand is a certified mail letter informing the tenant the rent is late.
All days count, unless the last day is Sunday or a Holiday.
I have forty three years experience in the specialty of Housing Law and Tenant's Rights advocacy. The answer I provided to you does not create an attorney and client relation. You are free to check my office contact information at my AVVO profile. The answer offered is in the nature of general information, and should not be considered as tailored legal advice. I offer answers as a service to the community with my firm belief that you should try gain a good outcome for your legal issue and to avoid a bad outcome if you can.
All days count unless the very last day of the period is a legal holiday (like Xmas) or a Sunday. In the latter case, the deadline would be moved to the first day thereafter that isn't a holiday or a Sunday.
