A Late Rent Notice is used by a Landlord or Property Manager when a Tenant is late in making a rent payment. A Late Rent Notice generally contains the date rent was due, the amount of time late the rent payment is, and any late charges that the Tenant has incurred due to their failure to make a timely payment. 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.
How to use this document

Generally, a Late Rent Notice is sent by certified 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.
There are no laws outlining specific requirements that a Landlord send a Late Rent Notice. A Late Rent Notice is not required by law, but can be a helpful interim action prior to instigating serious legal action and getting the Court involved. Further, there are generally accepted standards that Housing Courts believe to be convincing when a Landlord seeks to evict a Tenant for habitual lateness and nonpayment of rent.
