HELP...need some sound advice. Came home today (12/6) and found a Notice of Petition to Recover Real Property Non-Payment (xeroxed copy) taped to my door. It states I must go to court on 12/13 for recover of real property due to non-payment.
The petition states that I owe a balance of 82.00 for the month of October (I apparently bounced the check, my error and will take full responsiblity for it); also states I owe the rent for November in its entirety (not true I have a copy of my bank statement indicating this check was cashed on Nov. 15, 2000 (written and posted in the mail by the first of the month) and I owe the month of December which I have mailed in with the appropriate new increase due to gas inflation.
I do not want to be evicted, I have resided in this apartment for 5 years without incident. I live in Rockland County New York and have never been in this situation before. Am quite frightened and need advice on how to proceed so I do not get evicted from my home.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated as I like most folks live paycheck to paycheck. My apartment is not rent controlled and is a large complex.
Thank you in advance.
