Manhattan, rent stabilized written lease in a pre-war non-co-op non-condo building with about 25 or so apartments.
A friend has had his girlfriend living with him for nearly two years -- his name is on the lease and hers is not. In recent months they got a joint checking account and have paid the rent with that joint-check, signed by him. For this month's rent, they sent in a joint check (this time signed by her, the non-lease holder).
He got a call from his landlord saying that that joint check will not be accepted and to provide payment in another form.
Can a landlord refuse legal tender?
