Quick Tips: Late Notices

So your tenant’s rent is late (again). Do you call them? Do you go over to the property with a baseball bat? Unless you’re looking for a fight (or a jail term), consider a written notice instead.
As long as the grace period has not ended yet, a polite reminder works better, and leaves a paper trail of communication). Save yourself the time and headaches and simply send them a notice via snail mail, e-mail or fax.
Not only does it get the job done without confrontation, but it protects you as well (and if you haven’t noticed, we’re all about protection).
Warning: These are not eviction notices! If the grace period has expired, use one of our Eviction Notices to comply with local laws for filing an eviction.

Your late notices should:
  • Be sent immediately following the last day payment is due
  • Have clear and specific instructions on when, where and how to pay (cash or certified funds only). Be specific about any changes to location, will payment be picked up, etc.
  • Specify any late charges due and if they are to be included with rental payment
  • Indicate whether it is the first, second or third notice
  • Be sure your notices correspond to your lease agreement and is in compliance with your local and state laws
  • Indicate only late payment amounts that are in accordance with the law
A friendly reminder is sometimes all that’s needed to get your tenants to pay on time. It shows them you’re paying attention and that you have every intention of collecting on time, every time.

You want your tenants out and you want them out today. You have been more than patient, your tenants are taking advantage of you, and things are only going to get worse. So, why can't you just kick them out immediately? Wouldn't any judge understand that eviction is appropriate under these typical scenarios? • Tenants haven't paid rent in months. • Tenants let other people move in and never told you or asked permission. • The last time tenants let you in to inspect, you saw the unit was trashed. These examples – among many others – are lease violations and landlords do not have to put up with them. And, yes, action is definitely called for. Unfortunately, far too many landlords make wrong assumptions about the action they are per Read More »
