Do I have the right to pay my rent to the Property Manager in person instead of mailing it to the co

The apartment building I live in is just one of many apartment buildings owned by a large corporation. I have always paid my rent to the on-premises Property Manager's office. Now tenants are being told that rent payments must be mailed to the corporate headquarters. For many practrical reasons, I do not want to comply with this request. Am I legally obligated to do so?

Mail USPS delivery confirmation to the mailing address they provide you.  Mgmt has the RIGHT to change the manner of delivery of your rental payment.

You have to pay your rent in the manner specified by the management company. I'm sure that they have reasons for requesting that it be mailed, also.

I believe you are. Many companies make you do this, it may not be practical, but if they make it a rule, you must abide by it. I would talk with the management company and express your concern, but most likely they wont listen to you. Sorry to hear about the hassle.

Their request that rent be mailed is not out of line so I do not think you can complain, but you certainly can go to the headquarters and hand the check to someone and get a receipt or bring a receipt with you for them to sign.

If that is a hassle and they cannot offer a Plan B, you can just move.
