: overturned in Brusco v. Miller. A late charge must be reasonable and non-punitive,
: and must bear a relationship with the amount of rent at issue. The right
: to claim a late fee MUST be in the tenant's original lease (not a renewal).

Thanks for looking into this. Incidentally, there is nothing in Brusco v. Miller that talks about late fees having to be reasonable and nonpunitive. Is that what it says in the London Terrace case?

This has been an interesting discussion. Perhaps somebody could encapsulate all this stuff and put it on this web page as a fact sheet.
