Legal Question

Asked on: 3/20/10, 10:53 am

I live in an apartment complex where I always pay my rent online through their system. This month, I was 15 days late with my rent. On the 15th day, I had the money to pay more than half of the amount due, so I paid online. It was rejected and I was told I could only pay the full amount. Two days later, I had the full amount, and paid via the online system. That was also rejected and I was told they would only accept a cashier's check or money order. The next day I called my bank (they are out of state) and they are sending me a certified check that will be here in 2 days. Today I received an eviction notice. I feel this is completely unfair since I tried to pay my rent twice. Until I contacted someone in the corporate office, I was never given a reason why I could not otherwise pay online since I had the full amount. I feel like I have been cooperating fully with them yet I still have received an eviction notice and will now have to pay these court costs.

WHAT CAN I DO NOW? ANY HELP WOULD BE APPRECIATED.
