While I understand biding time, the fact is the tenant has done this before (please read original post) and the LL may not be so understanding if tenant avoids LL. Would this strategy be ok if it were the other way around? No.
If the tenant had come forward sooner with the truth, or even put up half the monies now, or offer to pay a little more in the rent for the inconvenience tenant is causing LL, then it would have been easier to negotiate with the LL, there would have been more reasonableness and less anxiety.
: : I live in NY in a rent stablized apt. My rent is due today, but I won't have it until the 10th. I got very far behind a few months ago, and got a letter demanding payment within three days, which I paid. Will I be OK until the 10th or due I risk eviction?
: I wouldn't tell the landlord: just pay it immediately, as soon as you can. Apoligize later, if he notices. AND DON'T PAY LATE AGAIN! You are risking eviction: he can send that 3-day demand on the 2nd if your rent is not paid on the 1st. If he sends enough of them, he can evict you for chronic late payment.
