The Late Rent Notice is a document issued by the landlord or an agent of the landlord to notify the tenant that the rent is due and request the rent. The letter outlines the rent due, the due date, and any late fees incurred by the tenant. A Late Rent Notice is often the first step in a landlord's attempt to evict a tenant who habitually fails to pay their rent on time.
The landlord may either send this letter in person or through his/her authorized agent. Note that the landlord's agent must be someone who has been authorized by the landlord under a Power of Attorney or a Letter of Authorization to act on behalf of the landlord in performing certain specific obligations.
How to use this document
This document can be used by a landlord or their agent to remind a tenant about the late rent payment. This notice includes the following information: the name and address of the landlord/agent, name and address of the tenant, the location of the property, the contact details of the landlord/agent, the rent due, and any late charges the tenant has incurred for failing to make timely payment.
After completing the document, it should be printed, signed by the landlord/agent, and delivered to the tenant. The landlord must keep one copy of the document for record purposes.
The tenant may also acknowledge receipt of the letter or takes steps to pay the unpaid rent. However, if the tenant fails to pay the rent, the landlord may start the process of recovering the premises, as the refusal to pay rent is a ground for ejecting a tenant from the premises. When proceeding with the recovery, the landlord or his lawful attorney must first serve a Notice to Quit to the tenant and then an owner's intention to recover possession. After this, the landlord can proceed to file an action for the recovery of premises at the Magistrate Court.
Note that if the tenant makes payment, the landlord/agent should issue a Rent Receipt to the tenant.
A landlord is not mandated by law to issue a Late Rent Notice. However, it is a good action before commencing an action at the Magistrate Court for recovery of the premises.
