I was served a 3-day notice but the form states "RENT IS TO BE PAID TO LANDLORD BY EFT METHOD PREVIOUSLY ESTABLISHED." This is followed on the next line just by the name of the landlord's LLC and their PO box. The form does not specify whether payment can be mailed or if an alternate option exists.
Am I correct that this means payment can only be made by EFT since it had been established once before already? Or, does the mere inclusion of the LLC's PO box indicate payment can be made by check despite the word usage in the preceding sentence?
Call up your landlord and ask. What is the issue if you want to cut the default? The sooner the better
Why do you care how the LL gets paid? Do you have a bank account? Do you have a debit card? Do you have insufficient funds in your account to pay the rent? Are you planning to use a credit card to pay the rent? Sounds to me like the LL wants to be absolutely certain that the rent is paid. I see nothing illegal about his demand.
You are not my client and I am not your attorney. This advice is given in the spirit of the AVVO platform and is based on general legal principles. You become a client when you enter into a formal retainer agreement with me.
Landlords want 3 things from tenants.
1. Payment of rent on time.
2. Tenants who do not bother other tenants or frivolously bother the landlord.
3. Tenants who inform the landlord of problems that need correction.
EFT is a simple method of paying the rent. Depending on your bank or Credit Union, it may save you 50¢ postage each month.
When the person gives you money, the person has an attorney and the attorney has a client, but not until then. Inspired by words of Abraham Lincoln
