oh landlords…

i have a very odd situation... my husband and I are renting a house from a private party and not from any kind of agency. We have been here almost a year and our landlord has been pretty good with requests for fixing things and has been very accommodating with our addition of a second dog. We pay $1300 per month to live here and we pay on the 15th of every month by mailing him our checks. In June of '08 we mailed our check and he said he had received it only it still hasn't been cashed. My husband and I have both contacted him about this check once by phone and another by mail. Every other check has been cashed since then and I'm pretty much just sick of looking at our account balances and seeing an extra $1300 in there (plus we could really use that cash right about now!). I realize that he is entitled to this money but he has not said anything about writing another check or even collecting this money! I have no idea where to even start to look for limitations or any kind of advice for how long he has to collect the money... I'm in MA and if anyone has any kind of helpful advice or some sort of counseling on this matter I would really appreciate it!
It’s lovely, but what the heck is it??
