In most states they have to give you 30-90 days before they can officially evict you so don't sweat it and pay the $6.25 in pennies

Yes but acting illegally goes beyond business. At a minimum they're required to give a "Pay or Vacate" notice, which is at LEAST 3 days pretty much everywhere in the US, and in Washington DC, where the OP Lives, it's actually a full 30 days.

Okay but you dont give money to every stranger you see. And the reasoning is having one day to pay it, not having the inability to pay it.

It's a very tempting idea lol unfortunately it would be as much a pain for op as it would be for the person op needs to pay the money to but still so very tempting it just might be worth it lol

to #7, the length of the eviction notice depends on the situation, like for things not related to payment reasons, it's thirty days. if it is payment reasons, it's up to two weeks. and yes my friends, I have checked my sources. just thought you should know

#10, not if they ask the bank for $6 in pennies. it will come in rolls OP can crack open, OP just needs to count out $0.25

Yea but all they did is threaten it. They probably meant he had three days before they would file for the eviction. They're running a business and that requires a firm hand.

22, and when they figure it out, they have to cut a 1 cent check for op. My dad did that to someone when I was a kid. He paid upwards of 100 dollars in pennies. People were stupid and actually called the police. Of course the cop told them they were wasting his time and made them take the chest of not-as-nice-as-gold coins. Dad purposefully overpayed by 5 cents. It's been nearly 20 years and still no check. Tsk tsk.

I was actually really confused about how one would even find that many pennies, until I remembered that the US still uses them.

This is hardly shocking. The DC real estate is crazy. When I left a couple years ago there was a waiting list for my place. They don't care how much you owe, they just care that you do and maybe the next tenant wouldn't. Consider yourself lucky that you didn't have to buy a cashiers check to pay that balance.

Years ago I was threatened eviction over $0.83 .... when I went to pay it the apartment manager shook her head and apologized...

I would write home and tell Mother about this but they want $6.25 for postage.
