What is a Late Rent Notice?

Sending a Late Rent Notice is your first step when collecting past due payment from a renter. This notice will help establish a history of late or delinquent payments and your efforts to collect. If you need to evict the tenant in the future, it will be helpful to have this history documented.

When to use a Late Rent Notice:

  • 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.

    You can make a Late Rent Notice online in minutes. Rocket Lawyer will build your document for you. All you need to do is answer some questions. Putting together your answers to the following questions will help make the process speedier:

    • Which month's rent has not been paid?

    • Will there be any late charges? If so, how will the late charges be calculated?
    • When must payment be received to avoid legal action?

    If you don't have all of the details you need, you can skip questions, and save your document for later.

  • Can I be evicted for missing one month's rent?

    It depends. Landlords must give a proper Eviction Notice before filing an eviction lawsuit. Tenants must pay rent before the time period specified on the notice or risk being evicted from the premises.

  • Is rent late on the 5th of the month?

    Rent will be considered late depending on the date specified in your Rental or Lease Agreement. Typically, rent will be due on the first day of the month.
