Can a landlord legally refuse third party payment?

we needed help with our rent do to some unexpected circumstances. on the first we took the payment from a local community center to our landlord and they refused payment. now they have filed for a eviction "for non payment of rent". what are our options and can they legally do this? btw there is nothing in our rental contract in regards to third party payments.

  • What are the odds of someone having the exact set of circumstances so recently?

    I would assume its within his rights to accept anything the way he says he will.

  • i dont understand why everyone is being so rude. its just a question. normally i would call an attorney and ask or schedule a free consultation however i was served yesterday and can not contact an attorney till monday. i was just curious if anyone knew the general law on this type of thing.
