Just keep the money in the bank.

No matter what scheme the landlord may be working on, if you have the rent money you have nothing to fear. Make sure you always get a receipt AT THE MOMENT OF PAYMENT even if you pay by check.

If six months go by and you hear nothing from the landlord then you may wish to start investigating to see if he died.
