I received a 3 day notice to pay or vacate. I had sent in a rent check. it was cashed. 6 days later, they posted another one. the only thing changed was the amount owed.

They know my work is currently slow, and I am not excusing anything. I am also in the process of changing jobs and selling off one of my cars in order to pay them up. I have no issue with this whatsoever. I owe the money, but here's the catch.

This landlord feels the need to not allow me to have any contact information whatsoever. Even on the notice, there is a address to a old house, but no phone number. The only number I have is to the maintenance man, and he really doesn't want to be involved, nor is it really fair to have him involved in our business.

Also, this was supposed to be changed to a rent to own, since financing a mobile home is next to impossible, but the landlord has decided that she likes collecting big rent checks.

Do I have any options at all here? I can't afford to just up and move, because in the business I'm in, (tour bus) and a boss that doesn't pay worth a hoot, I am not sure what to do.

Thanks!

the LL doesn't care about any "catches". Would you?

Yes; you have two options:
pay... or quit.

The landlord CREATED the catches...I didn't. So perhaps she should care.

A 3 day notice is the first step towards eviction. The eviction process is costly for a landlord to undertake so I suggest you write him/her a letter letting them know when you can pay. Depending on your county it could take more than a month before you are actually evicted by the authorities.

And once evicted, forget ever renting again... It's worse than skipping(disappearing). I work in real estate management, trust me, DO NOT get evicted, it stays on record for life, it's not like a 7 year bad debt that falls off your credit.

As soon as we run a credit and background check, evictions will show right up and are red flagged. We have seen some 20/30+ years old. When we get them, automatic denial of the application.
