Dear Sir / Madam
Your arrogance truely disgusts me. "I demand"? How conceited of you. Let me ask a few questions. If you truely believe we have violated the lease term back then, why address it now as opposed to back then? why four years of silence? have you been scheming something? As far as we're concerned, we did express our intention to terminate the tenancy about a month and a half prior to leaving, and since the superintendant told us we should've had notified at least two months before, we forfeited a month worth of rent. That's right, the amount you're claiming to us, we already paid.
Now, can YOU prove that we didn't notify our vacancy on time? Whatever documents / cheques / verbal agreements exchanged in regards to our tenancy was between us and the superintendant at the time. We did not directly deal with your client. Who knows what could've happened between us and your client? I don't know how many other middle-persons there could've been, and I find your letter, telling us to pay up within the specified time period, to be very absurd. You haven't explained anything, and you're not giving us enough time to deal with this.
The letter specifies that it was issued on 20th, but we can't help but think that you rigged the number. We received this letter on May 27, and this is a domestic letter, which shouldn't have taken more than a day to get here. And the letter specifies that we pay up before May 30. Instead of giving us time to review this matter and take approperiate measures, you had to resort to this cheap surprize attack. This is a clear evidence of your futile, pathetic attempt to rob us blind.
Let me tell you something. "I demand" you stop this nonsense right now, otherwise we'll be in full motion to counter-sue you and your client for fraud. We'll also hold you liable for a certain amount of compensation. We run a fair-sized convenience store, and now our hands are tied because we have to deal with your false allegation. At least one member of our family has to deal with this, meaning there's at least one less person to work at the store. This seriously affects our business and put unnecessary strain on our personal lives. We'll hold you liable for all this plus every cost involved in dealing with this mess. We're thinking approximate amount of $5,000.
If you're still willing to fight this war, do what you have to do. Just don't tell us you haven't been warned.
