Legal Question

Asked on: 10/16/12, 1:54 pm

I recently was served with an unlawful detainer, it contains the following errors..

i. the enclosed summons is incorrect, it is form sum-100 the correct form is form sum-130. The former clearly states "30 days to respond" .... the correct time should be "5 days"

ii. The required cover sheet was not attached, CA

iii. The proof of service was also not enclosed

Question: should I respond in the usual 5 days or can I wait the 30 days as stated on the sumons?

If I need to respond how should I fight the fatally defective UD-100?
