    First thing you do is turn off the caps. It's hard to read, the equivalent of shouting, and very annoying with that large block of text.

    Then, before we go any further, tell me what kind of residence this is: single family, multi-family, apartment?

    If single family (this is important) does the landlord own MORE THAN TWO single family rental residences?
