Unfortunately, this depends on the terms of your contract with your landlord. Without analyzing that contract, it is impossible to answer you question. Good luck.

Your lease agreement controls. Mr. Hackworth is correct.

It should be stated in your lease. However, an average is $5.00 after so many days late and $25.00 for a bad check.
