This Late Rent Notice may be used by a landlord or property manager when a tenant is late in making a rent payment. Late Rent Notice is often the first step in a landlord's attempt to evict a tenant who usually fails to pay their rent on time. However, it is not an eviction notice, it is simply a written notice to the tenant that rent is overdue and needs to be paid.

This notice includes:

  • the date;
  • the address;
  • the tenant's name(s);
  • the landlord's name and contact information; and
  • a warning that if it isn't paid promptly, the necessary steps required will be taken.

How to use this document

This document can be used to notify a tenant that their rent is due. This is an informal step that may be done before taking legal action (eviction notice). The notice includes facts about the property and lease agreement, including the address of the rental property, and the late charges as written in the lease (where permitted by Provincial law).

Generally, a Late Rent Notice is sent by registered mail, so as to create a record that the letter was sent and received by the tenant. This record may be useful in case of future legal action, such as an eviction action.

Applicable Law

This document is subject to provincial and territorial laws relating to residential tenancies. Information about such laws and their application may be found on the website of the provincial or territorial tenant board. In Ontario, for example, it is prohibited for a landlord to charge late rent penalties.
