If you have a copy of the lease agreement that you signed that shows that he is responsible for the pipe repair, make a copy of that section in the lease and attach it to a certified letter that you send to him that states the following:


(1) It the tenant's understanding that the LL issued an erroneous 60 day move out notice and that the LL has now retracted that notice;


(2) It is the tenant's understanding that the pipe repairs were due to XYZ reason and not due to any negligence on tenant's part;


(3) That under the lease agreement - clause XYZ, the LL is fully responsible for the repairs under the current circumstances;


(4) That tenant declines to pay for the repairs and is with in fully compliance with the lease terms and has not in any way breached the same;


(5) That the tenant believes and understands the foregoing points to be true and correct and that if the LL disputes any of these, he need to inform the tenant in writing with in 5 business days of his receipt of this letter.
