Earlier in the month I started the thread that follows, , in reference to my landlord (month to month contract) pushing to get his rent before the due date of the 1st and my rights.
He is really getting on my nerves. I got a text message from him over the weekend, "hello wuaname"... typically that follows with something about the rent. I ignored it, figured if it was important he can pick up the phone. I had already decided to hand him the July rent pmt on the 1st in person vs "leaving it under the rug", as he's requested in the past, and discuss with him to get off my case since he has NOT been paid late by me in the 3 months I've been there.
A 1-2 wks ago (b4 the wknd's text message) I got another text from him requesting payment in another form b/c my check's were takiing too long to clear (actually that was in the prior thread). I explained to him there was more than sufficient funds and that was his bank that put a hold on it, but he was welcome to walk into my bank's branch and cash it there..I was going and am going to tell him when I talk to him that it seems he's had some NSFs in the past since his bank is putting holds on local checks. He's really got to be tight on cash when he doesn't have enough funds in the bank to cover the clearing time on my $700 rent payment.
The text from 6/21 was "You're cks are taking 3-5 days to clear, so I will need to either collect earlier or collect cash". I texted back "read the contract, ck is due on the 1st, not cash"...and her ended the text convo with "I wil try cashing it, if that doesn't work I won't be accepting personal checks"... REMEMBER, I have not bounced a check at all , no cash flow issues on my end.
Well, today I got another text, and it goes something like this "hey wuaname, just a reminder, please put out check to "cash". thank you".. Is he kidding? a rent check made out to cash? What is he going to do sell it on the secondary market? LOL, go give it to a friend, a check cashing store?
What a PIA... What do you guys think I should tell him?
edit - I am definitely not making the check out to cash.
