Ask a landlord-tenant lawyer and get answers ASAP
Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I will try my level best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can.
Can you tell me what state this is in?
Is there any clause in the lease about late fees?
Is this a residential or commercial tenancy?
Ok, under CA law, if you are late on the rent, they have to give you a 3 day written notice to pay or vacate and you would be legally allowed to make payment on the rent and any late fees within that 3 day period and the landlord has to accept the payment.
