The usual late fee is about 5% anything over that is questionable as to wether a judge will allow it or not.
The landlord must give you by law a 5 day grace period, so he can charge a late fee on the 6th.
And of course the late fee MUST be stated in the lease, the landlord cannot make things up out of thin air.
: I am a rent controlled tenant living in a building built in 1904 in Manhattan.
: My LL imposes a $50 fee for rent payments given after the 7th of the month. Is this amount legal?
