Accepting Rent

Phil Querin Q&A: Accepting Rent From Non-Tenant Occupants

Question: When can a manager refuse payment by check? If the name on the check does not match the resident's name can (or should) the check be refused? Should there be a park rule to back this up? If the manager refuses payment because of the name on the check and asks for a money order or cash, does that have to be in the rules? All of this stems from the concern of unauthorized residents becoming tenants simply because a manager accepts a check for space rent when they are not an approved tenant.
