Whilst we understand that these issues occur occasionally due to errors and oversights, if rent is consistently late this may lead to difficulties in contract renewal and in our ability to provide a reference to any subsequent landlord.
We would recommend that if these late payments are a result of money worries, that you make contact with a debt counsellor at the Citizens advice bureau (local number) or the Consumer Credit Counselling Service (number) who can provide a FREE service to help you control your money.
It’s one of those situations where if you’re not in it, you probably won’t ever understand.
So while the rest of the world may think we’re overreacting money-grabbing bastards, we bloody know our anger and frustrations are justified. Generally, tenant’s miraculously turn mute when they’re late on rent or refusing to vacate after being served notice. But then, on those extraordinarily rare and mind-boggling occasions, you’ll be haunted with one of those absolute nut-job tenants, the ones that ignore for no apparent reason other than pleasure.
Regards3) 3 weeks late (Red Ink) (CC: Guarantor if you have one)Dear tenant, FINAL REMINDER --------------We would like to draw your attention to the fact that your rent payment of £due on the xth of monthname has not been paid. Can you please arrange to make this payment as a matter of urgency.
Where rent is late for 2 consecutive months, this is regarded as a breach of your tenancy agreement and, regretfully, will result in legal action being taken to reclaim the property and the outstanding debt.
Can you please investigate, and arrange to make this payment as soon as possible.
If your payment does not reach us by (Date) then we will also have to add the cost of legal fees to the amount owing.
We would recommend that if these late payments are a result of financial issues, that you make contact with a debt counsellor at the Citizens advice bureau (local number) or the Consumer Credit Counselling Service (number) who can provide a FREE service to help you control your money.
Anything beyond that is deemed as inappropriate, rude and extremely irritating.
Of course, the usual exceptions apply, like a life-threatening illness.
I’m grateful he pays rent; I understand the situation could be a lot worse because he could just ignore me altogether. A firm letter telling them that the are breaking their contract and that if it continues then you will have no option to seek increased rent payments to cover the interest lost by their actions. I'm going to talk to him and remind him that it's crucial I receive rent on time without having to chase him. If he continues to play the cat and mouse game after our informal chat, I may write a letter to him, so he takes it more seriously. Wherever I am, day or night, I do everything possible to respond to my tenants within the hour. Youve got to keep right on top of it or they take liberties. I ALWAYS respond to my tenants as quickly as possible, and I expect some common courtesy in return.
