More Landlord Troubles:Threatened Lockout

My psychotic landlord is at it again. Today, May 10, I went out for a walk and got home around eight p.m.; found nothing on my door. Three hours later, Jeff came home from an outing with friends and found a note on our front door -- a note dated May 8 -- which reads as follows:

Dear Resident(s):
Please be advised that per your lease the office MUST have a key to enter into your unit. This will be the FINAL NOTICE that you will receive in regards to the office not having keys to your unit. You have until the close of business on Friday 5.11.2018 to give us a copy of your key or we will find you non-compliant and your locks WILL BE CHANGED. 
Thank you
Kehoa York

Yes, I'm mentioning the manager's name this time; respecting her privacy is clearly pointless. And frankly, if any future would-be employers Google her name, there needs to be a record of her appallingly unprofessional behavior; this woman is both dishonest and dishonorable, and cannot be trusted with anything remotely resembling "authority."

Let's dissect the problems with this message:

First, we received a "final notice" without first getting any prior notices.

Second, despite the date reading May 8, we did not get this until well after the end of business hours on May 10, ordering us to produce a copy of the key by end-of-business next day. (Indeed, had Jeff not gone out, we would not have found that message until we left our house tomorrow.) As with that slanderous "illegal drug violation" they stuck on our door, they gave us a threat which could only be resolved by taking time off work, if we had a regular nine-to-five schedule.

Third, why is it our fault if they lost their copy of our key?

UPDATE, May 11: Turns out Ms. York had a copy of our key all along; apparently EVERYBODY in the apartment complex got a copy of that threat-letter. No apologies for the inconvenience, the threat of being locked out of our own home, or anything else, of course.

I seems like Kehoa York's first, last, and only response to any situation is to make threats and treat the person she's interacting with as an enemy. Unless it's someone in authority over her -- I'll bet she's as nice as pie then.

Also I've definitely identified which Strategic Management Partners LLC it is that employs Kehoa York. I wonder if they're even aware of how unprofessional her demeanor is in dealing with tenants, and how much needless trouble she creates for them with her constant threats and aggressive attitude.

I'd be happy to contact them myself and ask if they're aware of her abusive behavior, with a link to your blog posts, if you'd like.

I think it's actually "Elite Management" running this place; that's the name on previous threat letters we've received. Unfortunately, I do not have any contact information for them, else I've had called to complain about their out-of-control management's behavior well before this.
