When to reject a Tenant's cash

Nov 16, 2023

Picture this:

You're dominating Monopoly, like a boss.

Then your almost bankrupt buddy pulls a fast one:

 He slaps down the 'Get Out of Jail Free' card.

We saw a Tenant do just that.

And it was the Landlord's fault...

Here's what happened:

Tenant didn't pay.

Landlord served the ole 'pay up or pack up' notice.

And when the Tenant gave a sob story worthy of an Oscar, the Landlord took half the money.

Some is better than none, right?!?


Never accept partial payments after serving a 5-Day Eviction Notice.

*Alexa, blast "All or Nothing" by NSYNC!*

If so, you're hitting the reset button on the eviction.

And will need to start again if the rest of the money doesn't show up.

No jail time here, just issue #86 of The Brief.
