Legal Question

Asked on: 10/22/13, 12:40 pm

I am a tenant in California who needed to pay my rent late. I got a three day notice to pay or quit, i let the company know i would be paying in full in the next few days but not within the three days. I fully intended to pay the full amount along with a 60 late fee. the company then tacked on a $590 "litigation fee" that i had to pay along with past due rent and and $60 late fee. Mind you, my rent was not 30 days late. Is that "litigation" fee legal? can i get that money back? no court date was even scheduled!!
