I agree -- pay with money orders. I would also send the checks by Federal Express (you can use the cheapest route, fed ex economy or second business day) which is like $6 and change, and that way, you get a signature of receipt on file with yourself and fed ex, in case your LL starts claiming he never got the money order.
Make xerox copies of everything and put in a bank safety deposit box, and make an extra copy to keep home, just to have handy.
: I live in a 25 year old single unit house in California and have a typical renters agreement.
: Can my landlord hold on to my check for 30 days before cashing it?
: When I pay my rent at the beggining of the month my landlord has been holding on to my check for a month or more before depositing(or cashing)it sometimes cashing 2 months of rent at one time.
: Can he do this? And if so, does this mean that he could hold on to
: my rent checks for 6 months, and then cash them all at once?
