Leasing Forms and Addendums

(Download link is below the form)



(NOTE:  To be given to new, renewing and late tenants)


Dear Resident:

Your rent is due on the                        day of the month.  I'm sure you fully understand that we must start eviction proceedings immediately once a payment is late (no matter the reason) and report your late payment to both local and national tenant/credit reporting agencies.  We still request, however, that you submit your reason for late payment for our records.  For your convenience, and to avoid lengthy explanation, you may simply check the appropriate reason below and submit this form with your late payment.  Hopefully, this form and your payment will be received before you're evicted.  Even better, your payment will arrive on-time and you will not need this form


___       A. The check I've been waiting for did not come in the mail or was late.

___       B.  I was in the hospital/jail and I couldn't get to you.

___       C.  I missed a week's work because I had to take care of my sick mother/son/daughter.

___       D.  I had to have some teeth pulled and the dentist won't start work until I give some money.

___       E.  I was in an automobile accident and I won't have any money until my attorney works things out with the other    guy's insurance.

___       F.  I had my billfold stolen when this guy jumped me on my way to the bank/post-office/my office.

___       G. Someone broke into my apartment and took my money. No, I didn't file a police report. Should I?

___       N.  My husband/wife/boyfriend/girlfriend/roommate left and I didn't have all the money.
