    Feedback [*=*] Put Stop payment on rent check

    Renter placed Stop Payment on check after signing another 6 month lease and said rent would be paid by Fri Oct 12, and now is in the process of moving out. What are my rights?? Theft by check, breach of contract? What can I do??

    re: Put Stop payment on rent check

    LL's suggestions:

    Me, as a LL, I'd probably let a potential new deadbeat get out the place and make sure he was out---I do not want a deadbeat squatting in myplace!

    Then I'd pursue both sets of options --
    1. All available remedies under the contract and
    L-T law for breech of the contract.

    2. Whatever the TX law provides for a bad check under circumstances where maker puts a stop on it.

    And I'd proceed to try to get it re rented soon.....
