My landlord left 2 notices on my door and sent the police to my house, One of these notices was a 24 hour pay or quit. They said I didn't pay this month's rent. But I did--- according to my bank they cashed the check on August 31 because I paid it early. One of these notices said if I didn't pay the entire amount along with the 280.00 penalty they will turn it over to an attorney on Sept 19th. I have proof that I paid and I called them three times and left messages. They aren't getting back to me. Should I get an attorney? I know I don't owe them anything but they are ignoring all attempts to communicate. I can't leave this money tied up in my account. I have bills to pay and grocery shopping to do. They have me in limbo here but I'm scared they'll get a lawyer and I'll be in trouble.
