Dear [Apartment Manager/Housing Authority/Landlord]:

I am a tenant at [address]. I received a 30-day eviction notice on [date]. I require additional time to find another apartment and move out due to my disability.

I am requesting that you modify your eviction policy to permit me 60 days to find another apartment and move out as a reasonable accommodation under the Fair Housing Act.

Attached please find documentation from my [physician, psychiatrist, nurse, social worker, etc] verifying that my disabilities cause me to need additional time to find suitable housing.

Please reply in writing regarding this request for an accommodation within 10 business days. Thank you for your consideration and I look forward to receiving your reply.

Sincerely,
[Your Signature] [Your Name]
