Paid My Rent With A Money Order. Now I'm Told They Don't Have My Rent Payment and I must Pay in Three Days, Plus Pay an Extra Late Fee, Or I'm Out!

Posted by William Trader on May 07, 2001 at 04:52:49:

I live in an "Avalon Bay Communities" apartment in San Jose California. I have a one year contract, with 10 months to go, and I've lived here for over a year.

I paid my March rent on time with a money order. I do have the copy of the money order with the name of the apartment complex and the date on it. I then got a "three day pay or quit" notice on the 4th and was told that they don't have a payment for me and it's up to me to get a new money order fast.

My question is; since I have a copy of the money order I handed them and I did pay my rent on time, do I owe a late fee? Also, if it takes 30 days before my bank will reissue the funds used in the money order, can I make my apartment management company (Avalon Bay Communities) wait till my bank reissues the money order?

It should be know that I don't have the money to simply get a new money order and wait for a refund for the lost money order and that my apartment management company (Avalon Bay Communities) makes me pay with a money order because Iíve had a bounced check.
