Good afternoon,

I'm Doug, and I'm very sorry to hear of your situation. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today. In order to give you a clear and concise answer, I will need some additional information about the circumstances, please.

1. What does the rental agreement say about late fees?

2. Is the tenant a month to month tenant or do they have a lease?

3. What state are you in?

Doug
