Good afternoon,

I'm Doug, and I'm very sorry to hear of your situation. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today. In order to give you a clear and concise answer, I will need some additional information about the circumstances, please.

1. Are you at the end of a lease period and need to renew the lease? When does the lease end?

2. Or, are you a month to month tenant?

3. When does the landlord say that the increase becomes effective?

You have to give 60 days notice for what? An automatic renewal?

This seems like a very crucial matter for you, and your questions and issues suggest that an in-depth conversation might best suit your needs. If you are interested, for a very nominal charge I can offer you a private phone conference as opposed to continuing in this question and answer thread which is searchable and viewable by the public.

Let me know if you don't want a call and I will be happy continue here with an answer for you.

I can't assist you if you won't respond to my requests for information.

Good morning,

This will be my last attempt to get your attention. Depending on the facts of your situation, I may have an answer for you that saves you a lot of money by eliminating the rent increase, but unless you communicate with me I can't help you.
