What should I do if I can’t pay rent on time?

Communication is key! Call your landlord and discuss your current situation with them to see if they can be flexible. Check your lease to see what your grace period is, and if/when late fee charges will be assessed. If you are paying your rent late, make sure to note on the check or in the description within the web-portal what month the rent is for, so you don’t continue to be assessed late fee charges.
