A tenant responsability is to pay the rent on time every month. If you have a grace period, normally 3 to 4 days, the landlord have to wait until the grace period is pass. If landlord file for the rent, the tenant must be given a five days notice and the opportunity to pay all of the rent and any late fees anytime before the lawsuit is filed and avoid eviction.
Is a good idea to review your lease to see How many days of grace period you have.
Best of Luck,
