Question: After I have served a Demand on my tenant for non-payment, what are my choices?
Answer: If the tenant pays the amount demanded (or the amount legally due) in full within the three days following the date on which the Demand was delivered, the landlord has no choice but to accept the payment and allow the tenant to stay. The landlord may refuse or reject a partial payment. If a partial payment is accepted, then a new demand for the balance still due should be served. Once the three days have passed, the landlord is not required by law to accept it and may instead require the tenant to vacate by
commencing an eviction lawsuit.
