Sent rent, LL didn't cash certified check then along came 3 Day Notice expiring on 27Mar Tues. Since I am paying with certified corporate check, the bank will cancel the check BUT won't make them funds available for 90 days.
BTW, this is a common practice for LLs here, they sit on rent checks, "never sent rent", "envelope was empty" etc and he has told me he has a renter for $400/month more than I am paying. He wants me out but refuses to enter into an Early Termination; don't ask, he's a full blown imbecile.
Agree on filing emergency petition but too late today (Fri). Agree on eviction and paying into court rent to stay until I can find another place if it comes to that.
I'm juggling my various costs with potential positive cash outcomes against LL for constructive eviction.
