No worries. Make sure you keep copies of receipts, bank statements, cancelled checks, etc. as proof of rent payments.
If they want to evict you, they must take you to Landlord/Tenant Court at 34 South 11th St. in Center City. NO Judge will make you pay rent twice. It is the owner's fault. Obviously, he permitted the mgt co. to collect the rents.
When that co. went out of business, the owner should have sent you instructions in writing where to now send future rent payments. If the owner never provided notice, you can't be held responsible for the co. running off with the owners money. You did as required to do by your lease.
Wait til you get notice of an eviction hearing. The judge will give you atleast 30 days to move out should thet be the judgement.
Good Luck for a speedy recovery.

I do think you need legal advice..........if I understand you correctly, you paid the rent, but the management company that collected it never paid the landlord, and "ran off" with your, and other people's, money?
If you have proof you paid, I can't see how the landlord can force you out.
It seems to me he needs to go after the rental office personnel, and as long as you continue to pay your rent on time, I can't understand why he'd want you to move.
If I am missing something here, please fill me in.
If I have it correctly, and the landlord continues to harrass you, please seek a legal opinion for your own protection.
Hope your ankles heal quickly!
