So today, the 20th of the month, The Landlord was owed $867 in ProRated Rent and $575 in Late Fees. Well after notice was served, time expired and filing they they dropped off a $1300 Money Order for rent but no late fees. In the proceeding we were not allowed to ask for Late Fees even though it is on a Standard Residential Lease. How does the Rent Roll run from here? Does he adjust off rent and uncollected Late Fees against the amount of the Judgement and start prorating rent beginning tomorrow while we wait through the Appeal Process? We do not THINK they have the needed $1300 to post with a Paupers Affidavit but assuming they do and this gets to County Court, is he able to request the late fees? Realistically, How long can a tenant simply drag out the process? Anything I might not have thought to ask that you can offer would be appreciated.
