Technically the owner must serve you with a Three-Day-Pay-Rent-Or-Quit notice before any legal action can start. If he serves you and subsequently accepts any money from you at all, it renders the notice void. He would then have to serve you with a new notice for the updated amount of money that you owe. You cannot be evicted if you have not been notified what you owe and are given an opportunity to pay it via the notice.

If you've paid up, I doubt the owner will want to evict you...whether he could or not is actually a legal matter - best answered by an attorney.

In my experience, owners are not quick to evict tenants if they have been good tenants. An eviction costs money as does re-renting the place to new tenants. I would suggest speaking to the owner and making sure everything is ok at his end. You might also reassure him that you won't miss a payment again.
