My question involves landlord-tenant law in the State of: California
I renewed my lease for one year in June and the lease states I can pay by personal check, money order or cashiers check. The leasing office called me yesterday (after a UD case was dismissed) stating from now on, I can only pay my rent using money orders or certified funds. No previous checks have been dishonored by the bank. Can this be done without a 30 day written advance notice and in general? Also, it is appears that this is retaliation given the timing. Should I write a letter explaining that the written notice and a valid reason is required? Or is no reason required? Also, I plan on paying my September rent by previous methods.
