Legal Question

Asked on: 5/20/13, 1:02 pm

I've always paid my rent on time until this month where I mailed a check on the 15th and they said they just got it today the 20th. I called the apartment complex to let them know I'm mailing my rent check late and then I received a voice mail saying I had to pay rent at 9am the next day on the phone with a credit card or they were going to file papers for my eviction. I didn't receive this voice mail until after 9am and I assumed they were just bluffing but I just got a call today saying they got my rent check but they weren't going to cash it because they need an additional $150 fee for having to file papers. I really don't want to pay that fee out of principle can someone tell me what my options are? I really don't want to go to court.
