I have a twelve month lease. I rec'd a notice to vacate on my door 11 July 2012. This is what the letter says:
It is our unfortunate duty to inform you that our office willnot be able to accept your july rent. Due to the payment of your rent for your apartment being late 5 times over the term of your lease. Our coorperate office is terminating your lease and requesting that you vacate. Please refer any questions to our cooperate office.
I have a few questions. From what I researched this is considered an unconditional quit notice. The letter is dated 11 July 2012. They are not giving me a chance to pay the rent. Yes I have paid the rent late due to employment issues but its never been past seven days and I have not recieved an eviction notice before from the company. I have the rent money and have left four messages per day with the VP and the distrcit manger, all not to be returned. They disabled my ability to pay rent online and also to accept it in person at th office. WHat are my options. Nothing they have given me has a date on it? I dont know how many days I have to leave and no one i returning my phone calls.My lease is up in August 2012. There has been no legal filings as of today against me and stil no repsonse from the company. Should I mail them my rent certified to the cooperate office? Should I send them a letter? Get a lawyer? My rent was late most times because of change of pay, I am in the Army reserves and do about 15 days a month. The last two months my rent was late bc I am catching up on bills from a deployment which ended May 17th. So June and July rent were late. I am in Ohio.
