Guys, I am so very sorry to freak you out. I made a typographical error. Added an extra digit. It's only $1260. My rent is very cheap, but they want it quarterly in aadvance, and I only paid a part quarter last time. Thanks for your concern, everyone. Means a lot.

Do you have a car? If you do don't sell it just to pay the rent, you can always sleep in your car (I have done it for 3 weeks). is difficult situation to handle, but is still better than sleeping under the bridge

Oh that's a much different amount, I was wondering how someone could amass that much rent and still be living in the same place. Could you not get a loan somewhere or have any of those advance pay places, not an ideal option but one you could use. That is still a lot of money when you don't have it. You mentioned you have credit cards but don't seem to wan to use them, but can you use your balance for cash? Seems like something you might have to do get yourself out of this jam.

Well at least you're still kicking lol. Damn well near had a heart attack. 1260 is a different number lol. I'm sure you can arrange something between a landlord and yourself over the amount.
Quarterly in advance...is that even legal? Unless the system is different from Canada's, they aren't allowed to threaten you if you don't pay them in advance. You're liable to take them to court and win over it. Have you spoken to a lawyer about this?

If you sign a lease saying you will pay quarterly, it would be legal.

Well such leases aren't legal here and if a landlord makes you sign a lease with advance payments required, we have an organism called "La Régie du Logement" (Like Rent protection or something) that can investigate and nullify the lease.
This is all speculation mind you, I'd need to read up on what the Regie says lol. But I'm like, 80% sure leases like that aren't allowed in Canada. Not sure about elsewhere though.

In Australia, you pay in advance at agreed intervals (weekly, monthly, etc). You sign a lease for a given amount of time (usually six or twelve months), then you either sign another one, or go to a "casual lease" which has advantages and disagvantages. It means the landlord can kick you out with less warning and no reason, but it also means you're not stuck there if you want to leave. However, mine is even more casual - cash under the table. It doesn't exist, in theory.

Anyway, got a text back from my landlord. She told me to take my time and hoped I was OK. When I was in hospital for four monhs in 2013/2014, she waited four months for rent; not out of the goodness of her heart (although I find her quite nice), but the only way I could pay her from hospital would be electronically, and she didn't want an electronic money trail. So, because of the dodgy legality of it, I've got some leverage.

My car is worth $500 and I need it. Credit cards maxed because I've been using them to live on when sick and off work. I'm working on other options.

Thanks for your help, guys.
