Welcome and thank you for your question. I will be the professional that will be assisting you.
It is not considered paid if the check bounces.
When did the 3 days start?
Do I still have time to pay it if they haven't filed a claim in court?
it started on Nov 5
When did the 3 days start
Yes, you have time to pay
I paid on Nov 8, then received notice last night that the check was returned. I collected the money today and plan on taking it to the office first thing in the morning
if they filed a claim, should I have received the summons already?
The landlord can still pursue the matter, if he accepts the paymen
If the landlord accepts the payment the process would stop
even if I got served a summons and made a payment after that, the process would still stop?
It will only stop is the landlord accepts the payment
You are most welcome
