A: You seem to be missing the recognition that rent has a due date. If not timely paid, the landlord can throw you out. IF the landlord is willing to wait for the possibility of a third party payment, fine. But you can not force him to and if you have not paid, in full, by the deadline in your 144 hr or 72 hour notice, the landlord does not have to accept your payment after that and is legally entitled to remove you so he can bring in a new tenant that will pay in full on a timely basis.
