After receiving a 24 hour eviction notice, does the landlord have to accept money if it is offered to him?
I have been working to get money from a 401k plan and have been approved. Was going to use this money to pay my landlord but just received a 24 hour eviction notice today. If I offer money to my landlord after just recently paying him $400 for good faith does he have to accept any money owed and if so will I still be evicted?
If you offered the past due rent owed the landlord after the time period of the 24 hour eviciton notice has passed, the landlord legally is under no obligation to accept the money owed. If the landlord refuses to accept the tendered money past the time period of the 24 hour notice, then the refusal signals an intent that the landlord most likely wants you out of the rental.
If the landlord accepts the $400 that you write about after the passage of the 24 hour period, make sure you receive a receipt signed by him or her with some writing on it that you can remain as a tenant.
