I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today. I'm sorry to hear about your situation.
If your lease expired years ago and you've been paying rent ever since, you're considered a month-to-month tenant at this point. That means the landlord needs to give you 30 days notice to vacate before he can legally require you to move. You can try mailing the rent to the landlord to prove that you made the payment, if you have an address. Or you can wait to see if you get a notice to pay or quit and then pay. But a landlord cannot simply refuse rent or not pick it up and then evict someone. You'd have a right to pay at any time before the eviction hearing. The most important thing is that you don't spend the money until you hear from the landlord.
