Legal Question

Asked on: 4/25/13, 2:30 pm

My Housing Rental Company said I have to pay them via money order or cashiers check. I want to pay via personal check because that is what is easiest for me. Last months rent was paid via money order as requested and it has since been "lost" not only am I out this money but also the money I had to pay to buy money orders and I have also had to pay almost $200 in fees to recover the money orders. My question is - Is it legal to force me to pay via money order or cashiers check and also, when I sent them a check for my 1st months rent via personal check they cashed it and now the have refused my next months rent (personal check) and sent it back to me with a letter stating it is against their policy to accept checks. Since they already have, haven't they set a precedence?
