We refer to the above matter and out previous letters.
Your Honor, I am writing this letter to you prior to my plans of contacting you later on in the
course of today.
On May 31, 2020, we moved out of the subject apartment even though the evacuation order has
been put on hold until further notice due to the Covid-19epidemic.
Your Honor, our financial situation was disclosed to you in our previous letters and I would like
to humbly state that the same has not changed. My husband and I have been unemployed since
March 14. It is until recently that my husband started receiving unemployment benefits which
are not enough to sustain us and our current needs. My application for the same is still pending.
Based on the foregoing, we have no income to rely on.
Despite of our current financial situation caused by lack of work and/or employment, we ensured
that we minimized the cost of moving from the apartment by personally doing the moving
ourselves. To that effect we moved to an apartment that the monthly rent is half of what we had
Your Honor, despite of all the efforts and good will in moving out having in mind we are in the
middle of the Covid-19 epidemic, the landlord is still frustrating us. Specifically the landlord
abused us by failing to sympathize with our current financial situation and instead he urged us to
show the apartment to a Realtor during our stay which was in the last week. In addition to that,
the management required us to pay a moving fee and deposit; we explained to them our current
situation and that we cannot afford the same therefore our landlord filled the evacuation order.
As a result of the restriction of movement measures such as quarantine we were forced to mail
the keys via express mail on June 1, 2020 (Monday) 10 am. Kindly find herein attached a copy
of proof of delivery of the keys to the property owner on June 2 nd , 2020.
We have tried to settle the situation with the landlord because we have not been able to pay the
rent since March due to the effects of Covid-19 which has led to closure of businesses. The
landlord gave us a proposal of waiving the late fee which was applied falsely since he used to
hold the checks and failed to deposit them on time. Kindly confirm this from the initial letter we
had sent to you.
Your Honor, I am writing to you seeking your assistance and intervention in this matter. We
have been terribly affected by the Covid-19 global epidemic therefore our financial situation has
deteriorated and we are unable to earn a living.

This situation has been hard on us because of the anxiety of dealing with an eviction notice while
in a lockdown and without any income. In addition to that the abusive behavior of the property
owner demanding to enter the unit without our permission and lack of property maintenance and
deceiving us by not replacing the fridge or fixing the HVAC unit, lack of sensitivity to our
situation and requests since the first day when we moved, to cancel the debt that is against us for
the rent, we requested the landlord to use our deposit (April and May was not paid) and clear the
eviction order not to affect our credit.
Your Honor, we have taken the liberty to attach a copy of our new lease at our new place for
We look forward to your kind assistance and intervention in this matter.
