Letter sent to tenants in error

Tenants at a low-income Malden apartment complex received paperwork from their property manager with the letterhead of the Malden Redevelopment Authority’s lead abatement program, but the landlord never formally applied for the program and the paperwork never should have been sent, according to officials.

Jennifer Pozark said she got the notice Aug. 8 that her apartment at 166 Salem St. was being considered for the lead program, with instructions to read and sign a tenant information/agreement form. The form, a copy of which was supplied to the Globe, said she would receive $100 per day her apartment was unlivable, but would not receive the stipend until up to two weeks after the work was completed.
