I received a 3 day notice to pay rent or vacate from my landlord.

This answer was rated:

I received a 3 day notice to pay rent or vacate from my landlord. I paid the rent, however a deposit I had made in my account was returned and caused my rent payment to bounce. Does the landlord have to give me another 3 days notice to pay or can they immediately start the eviction process? I found out the payment bounced last night and got the money today, and plan on paying them in the morning. Can I still do this or do I need to wait for a summons?

Leslie, Esq. :

Welcome and thank you for your question. I will be the professional that will be assisting you.

Leslie, Esq. :

It is not considered paid if the check bounces.

Leslie, Esq. :

When did the 3 days start?

Customer:

Do I still have time to pay it if they haven't filed a claim in court?

Customer:

it started on Nov 5

Leslie, Esq. :

When did the 3 days start

Leslie, Esq. :

Yes, you have time to pay

Customer:

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

Customer:

if they filed a claim, should I have received the summons already?

Leslie, Esq. :

The landlord can still pursue the matter, if he accepts the paymen

Leslie, Esq. :

If the landlord accepts the payment the process would stop

Customer:

ah ok

Customer:

even if I got served a summons and made a payment after that, the process would still stop?

Leslie, Esq. :

It will only stop is the landlord accepts the payment

Customer:

ok

Customer:

thank you

Leslie, Esq. :

You are most welcome
