Even if your landlord did accept them, most that do will charge a 3% or higher fee to pay rent with a credit card. It's not something you would want to do unless you absolutely have no other choice.
What is your motive for paying rent with a credit card - because you want to earn rewards or you can't afford to write a check? If the reasoning is rewards it will never be worth your while because even the best credit cards only give rewards of 2% on regular spending like that.
If you need to pay rent with a credit card because you are having financial problems, one technique I suppose could work would be with Paypal.
If you have a friend that would allow you to send them the money and they would turn around and give it to you, then that would e an option. You will still get hit with a 3% fee but it is the only way I can think of for paying rent with credit cards if your landlord won't accept them.
I hope this advice helps.
