Customize and Edit Late Fee Settings

Important Notes
Changing the late fee settings for a tenant does not affect historical late fees already posted. The daily late fee will apply if there is any outstanding balance (this includes rent and any other previous or current month's charges). However, the daily late fee will not populate if the only balance remaining is a current month's late fee. This charge will post daily until the tenant's balance is positive.

Create Custom Late Fee Charge

They system defaults any non-rent tenant charge as a 110 Charge on the tenant ledger. You are able to create separate customized tenant charges that have a corresponding category report in Products & Services under Settings. More information on creating custom tenant charges can be found here: Customize and Add Other Tenant Charges.
