Phil Querin Q&A: 72 Hour Notice and Partial Payment

 

Question: A resident stops by the manager’s office on the 5th of the month and offers to pay $150 of the $350 of rent that is due, and promising to pay the remaining $200 by the 15thof the month.  The tenant claims that the landlord mustaccept the partial payment.  What are the landlord's options?  Can the landlord refuse the partial payment?  Where do you draw the line - say a 72 hour notice has been issued - does that change the partial payment scenario?

 

Phil Querin Article: Two 72 Hour Notices and Court Fees

Question:  We have had to file two consecutive FED Complaints against a resident.  The day before the first appearance for each case, the resident tender the rent that was due, although he did not pay the court fees of $115.00.  After two months of this, he owes us $230.00.  He promises to repay this amount but does not.  Now rent is due for January, 2017.  We are sure the same thing will happen again. How can we collect the court fees?
