What happens if my tenant does not pay rent on time?

Real Property Management Prestige handles everything for you when your tenant does not pay on time, and this is a crucial aspect of property management. When your tenant fails to pay rent on time in Texas, it’s essential to follow the legal procedures while maintaining good landlord-tenant relationships.

Here’s the steps we take:

Day 1: Rent is always due on the 1st of each month with a grace period of 4 days which makes it late on the 5th.

Days 2, 3, and 4: The tenant is receiving daily emails, texts, and calls to remind them that they have an unpaid balance that must be paid.

Day 5: If the Rent is not paid by the 5th, then the tenant is charged a late fee. Daily Communication still continues to get the balance paid.

Days 6 and 7: We will continue to communicate daily with the tenant to collect the unpaid balance.

Day 8: If the Rent is still not paid, we will send a 3 Day notice to vacate via email, certified mail, and Regular Mail.

Day 10: We have continued our daily communication, but if it is still not paid by the 10th we will offer the Tenant a payment plan to avoid eviction.

Day 15: If the tenant has still not paid, been unresponsive to payment plan, or does not vacate the property after Notice to Vacate, we will proceed with filing an eviction lawsuit in the appropriate Texas Court.

We are pledged to the letter and spirit of U.S. policy for the achievement of equal housing opportunity throughout the Nation. See Equal Housing Opportunity Statement for more information.
