I paid rent with 2 money orders sealed in an envelope and hand delivered the envelope was stamped paid on the 1st one week later he contacted me stating he only received part of the rent (1 of the 2 money orders) I staged that both were in the envelope and sent copies to him another week goes by he says he didn't get it and I needed to request a replacement so I did I paid that along with the next month rent and now he is charging me $200 in late fees can he do that
Paying with money orders or cash is a bad idea unless you get a written receipt at the time of payment. This situation arises frequently. I would recommend getting a checking account and paying by check so you have records with the bank that the check has been cashed.
