As a practical matter, I tend to agree with
Richard. As to the legal matter, you should read the lease. Does it actually provide for late
charges? If so, it should say 5% of what: (1)
the entire month's rent, even if some of the rent has been paid, or (2) the amount unpaid, which
could be less than a month's rent or several
months' rent and late charges.
: Well you guys BLEW IT!................
: You ticked of the LL, he was being nice and you guys abused him
: Now he will look for any excuse to evict
: So pay the 5% and offer to pay the last 2
months lates fee too! ....To get back in his good graces
: Rule #1......Never pay your rent late TWO
months in a row!
: : My lease calls for a 5% late charge if the
rent is not paid by the 5th of the month
: : I. paid half of my rent before the 5th and my roomate (who's also on the lease) still hasn't
paid as of today the 10th.
: : The Landord is charging us the 5% penalty for the entire month's rent. We've been late for the past few months and he always waived the late
charges but now he says we have to pay. Can he
charge us the penalty based on the the entire
month's rent or only the portion remaining?
