Making regular payments I can afford - Can they Send to Collections?
I have a balance on an old apartment lease (broken lease 1 month rent) that I am making regular payments on of an amount I can afford as I am only one of three in family working ($100 per month on balance of $1600). I am being told that I must sign a payment agreement of $200 a month and they will not take my $100 check. If I don't sign the agreement they will send me to collections.
Can they do this with regular payments being made and a financial hardship situation? The lease was from NC and I now reside in another state. Can they do anything more than send to collections i.e. attach my paycheck?
