You are overreacting. You have five days from the date of service to answer. Conspicuous placement service is complete on the date of mailing of the papers by regular mail and certified or registered mail. The papers should have been affixed to the door or slipped under the door, after the process server made reasonable efforts to effect personal service.

: I have just recieved a notice of petition/Non-payment from my Landlord's attorney dated February 19, 1999. Today is the 24th. It was stuffed into my mailbox, without an envelope, and I have recieved no certified copy or any official mail delivery.Not even taped to my door. What should I do? Is this notice properly served?
: It says the LL swore the petition on Feb. 15, and (as I said)it is dated the 19th, but it says I have to respond within Five days and today is the 24th!! Are my five days past? He didn't even mail it to me and he waited until the five days were past. He did this on purpose! Can he get away with this or am I overreacting? Please respond.
