Question: I accidentally over paid my rent. Is there a timeline for when my landlord should repay me?
Answer: The landlord is required to act in "good faith." This means that he/she is required to compensate you for the overpayment. Ask the landlord to state in writing what he plans to do with the overpayment. Such as apply the overpayment to the following month's rent, or reimburse you by some other method such as check or cash.
