Then submit all of that (copies, not the original), including a copy of both sides of the check if the reverse shows deposit information, one side if it doesn't, and including copies of you signature on as many other documents as possible -- documents that were created well before this incident. Show you check register or bank statement accounting for all deposits during the period in question (you can white out private information -- better yet, use black magic market and explain to DHCR you are redacting certin information if it is necessary), but if it's not a privacy issue, then don't redact anything. If you have witnesses to any interaction that occurred between the two of you, that could bolster your assertions. Have those people submit affidavits asserting to what they observed, either in her general behavior or to any of the agreements between the two of you. If they were there and observed it, then they have personal knowledge.

: She paid the 1 month by check and yes we signed an agreement which stated the amount of rent she would pay, which was $1.31 less than half my rent. She is claiming that she paid 3 of the months in cash and gave the D.H.C.R. these "rent receipts", typed up, with my name and address at the top and some signature that is clearly not mine. She also gave a written share agreement, handwritten by her with a signature that is again not my own. All I have as evidence is the real, bonafide, official Apartment Roommate Share Agreement, neatly typed (like a real lease or document should be) with both our signatures, and of course a copy of the check she gave me. That's all I have because that's all she gave.
