The landlord does have the right to contact you at work if you skip out of the unit all together in an attempt to locate you and give you official notice of any debt or personal item storage.
Otherwise, the landlord should make the attempts at your rental unit (assuming you are a current tenant)or via mail. This would be the appropriate methods.
: It's possible that it might violate the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act to call the workplace. Yes, the procedure is a 3-day demand followed by the commencement of a non-payment proceeding. But (without chekcing the IP numbers), your response sounds a lot like Richard, whereas there might be several legitimate reasons for non-payment. But that was not the issue of the inquiry. That kind of chastisement is inappropriate.
: : Nope-Landlord serves tenant with 3 day demand for rent: If you don't pay the rent, in full, with 3 days from your receipt of the demand, landlord can start proceedings to recover possession of the apartment. You have a job,SO WHAY HAVEN"T YOU PAID YOUR RENT?
