Answer: You should be able to get your money back if you bring your unused money order back to wherever you got it and explain the situation. If you have your receipt you should bring that as well. They will provide you with additional instructions. As for whether it was appropriate (and lawful) for the landlord of the new RV park to change his mind in response to the phone call he received from your current landlord, it is impossible to say without knowing all the details.
