There is nothing that prohibits that refusal - the tenant can always go get a cashier's check. Some landlords will refuse personal checks if the tenant has bounced checks in the past.

What is retention money or security money?

When you rent an apartment, landlords usually ask for a security deposit equal to a month's rent.

Can a landlord refuse to accept your rent payment?

Some states have laws that say a landlord cannot refuse the rent, if the tenant has all the rent owed.

Many landlords will say, "Look, if you don't have it all, keep what you have, and use it to move."
