Your rent is due on the date stated in your lease (usually the first (1st) of the month). Do not confuse this with the past due date (usually the fifth (5th) of the month). All rents are considered late if not RECEIVED by the DUE date. If rent has not been received by the past due date, a late fee as per your lease agreement will be charged to your account.
We do not waive late charges. Fair Housing laws require that we treat all our residents equally. We cannot decide if one resident is more deserving than another of paying late charges, therefore we enforce late charges across the board.
