I got a call from my landlord today complaining that my rent check was post dated, and that I needed to send a new one ASAP. I have done so, but my confusion is that she said that post dating a check is illegal. I don't see how this could be true, so I thought I'd run it by this board and see if my instinct is right and that she's just trying to scare me.
I did not purposely post date anything. She didn't tell me the date I had written, but I would guess that I had combined the month the rent was due (February) and the day I wrote the check (the 27th) to create a whole new date. Oops.
Also, she made it clear that my checks are to be dated the date rent is due every month. Technically speaking, because I mail my check in, isn't this post dating it?
Thanks for any help you can provide!
