879 - What Is A Late Rent Notice And How To Write One by Scott Gibson
Writing a late rent notice is an unavoidable part of being a landlord. The notice of a late rent payment has three purposes. First, it reminds the tenant to pay the overdue rent promptly, informs about late fees, and then warns the tenant of the consequences of nonpayment. However, a late rent letter has a more important purpose — it’s a formal document necessary if you choose to start an eviction process.
Of course, being a landlord is easier when all tenants pay their rent on time. However, even the most diligent tenant can forget to pay their rent money by the first of the month. Of course, some tenants have serious financial difficulties and cannot pay rent. But in all cases, writing a late notice for rent is a vital part of the rent collection process.
This article is a complete guide to dealing with overdue rent and how to encourage tenants to make rent payments on time. You will also find a helpful late rent notice template and step-by-step instructions on writing a late rent notice.
