Will do. Iike I said, this whole thing is new to me, my entire adult life I was never more than a day late with rent. I really have no idea how it all works but when I went to the complex office to explain they told me that if I fall two months behind on rent they will take legal action, no exceptions, as for just putting it on a credit card, I don't have one with the space, now that many of you lent me a hand, January is paid, as well as some of the smaller bills, I'm not really worried about February anymore since I set up a loan to cover that month and anything outstanding in January, just need to get a fresh pay stub, I get paid on the 16th, on the 20th I'll have what I need.
Then I'm off to the races!!! I really appreciate all the advise and will keep it all in mind, but I'll be cold in the ground before I let this crap happen again!!! Thanks again to everyone who has help out, it mean a great deal to me.
That rent deposit rule is not followed by many land lords.
