I normally submit rent on the 1st of the month after I get paid. This month I wasn’t going to be in town on the 1st so I gave my check to my landlord early with explicit instructions to not submit the check until the 1st, she agreed to not submit it until the first. Also, the check was post-dated to the 1st so my understanding was the check couldn’t even be submitted until the 1st even if she tried. Nevertheless my landlord tried to submit the check and it bounced and she is now charging me fees for the bounce say it is my fault that she forgot.
Do I have any legal right to not pay the fees? Again I did post-date the check and explicit ask her to not submit it until the 1st which she aggred to.
