I'm not sure how rent control works but if your lease is up on the 31st...is he required to renew it?
Well as for the the rent, I guess you should start paying by check. Obviously you shouldn't pay the back rent if you already paid it. Its kinda hard for him to prove that you didn't pay it either...

Also to add to the receipts, I recommend paying the LL in a money order nxt time you rent(pref a postal money order) instead of cash. The money orders have their own receipts in which you can keep for occasions just like this one. You can use the receipt to track who cashed the money order. But good luck with your situation because is gonna be hard to prove your case w/o receipts.

Receipts are the means. The landlord wants to rent to someone else for more $. Isn't that understandable? Anyway, just for the heck of it, ask him how much does he want monthly to let you to stay...
