Landlord and Tenant - Mobile Home Parks

questions & answers

Question: I am reaching out on behalf of my mother. My mother has toxoplasmosis and has been losing her eyesight gradually. It is hard for her to do things by herself (but she is proud and I can’t watch her all the time to make sure she doesn’t cause issues like this). My mom ordered checks through a third party associated with her bank. this website makes her enter her own account numbers. Due to this, she accidentally made bad checks and tried to pay her rent with one. They didn’t notify us until yesterday that the check bounced and are trying to charge us 100 dollars in fees. Can I fight this legally

Answer: In such a situation, a tenant (or tenant’s advocate) may wish to speak with the landlord directly to provide an explanation and request that an exception be made to the collection of the usual fee.
