If it's a fairly gradual drop, you could go over the Hardi with SLC. Did the Hardi conform to the drop in the subfloor without cracking?

Of course, it's good to find out exactly why that area is lower, and at least determine that it's not going to continue.

BTW, I'm sure someone is reading this and thinking, "why didn't he check the floor before he started laying tile?"

Well, funny story (not really)...

I was sure that my floor wasn't level - on the side that I started laying tile. I checked for level all over - the side that I started laying tile. Once I figured out that it was almost dead level - I started laying tile. It never occurred to me that half the floor wouldn't be level until after, you guessed it - I started laying tile. Lol, there's probably a good reason I don't do this for a living.

Kman, the Hardi is actually running parallel to where the drop starts, right on the seem. I got lucky there. The drop is because it wasn't built properly. The kitchen is half on the basement. Someone added an addition (expanding the kitchen and adding a family room), and they did a poor job of making sure it was level. I'm sure they figured, "what's 3/4 over seven feet? No big deal".
