do you think I'm stupid? You want him to pay me after I leave the property?
chill out dude, this is a common thing. You would have the landlord put the money into escrow and sign an agreement to essentially buy you out of the apartment. If they're going to boot you out or make your life hell, might be a better option to take payment to leave. Lol at $22,000 not being shit and demanding $100,000 to leave. If $22,000 is small change for you then why are you living in such a cheap apartment? Damn dude. You're being extremely hostile to people that are offering advice.

There's not much you can do really except establish a paper trail of mail with receipts showing the checks have been delivered, along with a record of your phone calls and emails. If the landlord continues not to pay I would definitely recommend an escrow account or other account so you don't accidentally spend it.

If they try to evict you for non-payment of rent, the judge will
A: ask you if you have the rent at the time of the court meeting, at which point you'll be allowed to pay it (generally you only have until 4:30PM of the court day) and they will deny the eviction proceeding.
B: tell the landlord to fuck off for trying to pull this.

So long as you keep the money handy and available, you can not be evicted. You'll be fine.
