Partial Rent Payments

Partial Rent Payments

Tenant will violate their lease or rental agreement if they don’t pay the full amount of their rent on time. If they can’t pay the full amount on time, they may want to offer to pay part of the rent. However, the law allows the landlord to take the partial payment and still give the tenant an eviction notice.112

If your landlord is willing to accept a partial rent payment and give you extra time to pay the balance, it’s important that you and the landlord agree on the details in writing. the written agreement should state the amount of rent that you have paid, the date by which the rest of the rent must be paid, the amount of any late fee that is due, and the landlord’s agreement not to evict you if you pay the amount due by that date. both you and the landlord should sign the agreement, and you should keep a copy. such an agreement is legally binding.
