“My rent is always due on the first of the month with no grace period allowed. When I sen my rent off, it always gets to my landlords office the next day. I sent my rent off on the 31st and I got a letter from my landlord a few days later saying I was late an now owe late fees. He's also trying to raise my rent because he says I was late 4 times. I was told by the post office that it arrives next day. My landlord never brought it to my attention that my rent was ever late until it was time to renew my lease. Do I have to pay the late fees and can he raise my rent?”
