Late Rent Notice basics

Most of your tenants will be great, but sometimes the rent doesn't come in on time. That's when a Late Rent Notice can help. Sending this reminder is your first step to collect past due payment from a renter. Plus, it's in your best interest to get everything in writing if you need to take further legal action down the road.

Use the Late Rent Notice document if:

  • Your tenant is late with the rent, and you want to send a notice in writing asking for payment, which may include late charges.
  • You want to reinforce the importance of timely payments to your renter.
  • You may consider eviction down the road if the rent continues to go unpaid, since a record of late payments will help support your legal eviction.

As a responsible property owner or property manager, you need to keep good records, and this is especially true with financial matters. For example, if you send a Late Rent Notice, and you still don't get the rent you're owed, the notice will help establish a history of late or delinquent payments and your efforts to collect. If you need to eventually evict the tenant, it's helpful to have this history documented. Ideally, sending the notice will be all it takes to jog your tenant's memory and motivate him or her to pay the overdue rent. If you choose, you can also use a Late Rent Notice to request late fees as compensation.
