    Default Can a Landlord Alter One Year Lease

    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.

    Default Re: Can a Landlord Alter One Year Lease

    So they filed an eviction action against you for some reason, it was dismissed for some reason, and now they don't want to take your personal checks? How about telling us what happened.
