Landlord and Tenant Rights and Responsibilities

questions & answers

Question: I signed my contract on the 24th of August 2019. I didn't move in until 26th due to no fridge and power. I paid 795 plus the 250 when I turned my application in and signed the lease. Them never mentioning that I had a pro rate for August of 205 till after I signed the contract. Now are charging me the late fees for the pro rate. The contract states everything about late fees but nothing about pro rate.

Answer: If the landlord did not specify the prorated rent due for August in the rental agreement, then you may wish to send them a letter, along with a photocopy of the relevant part(s) of rental agreement, requesting an explanation.
