A: As outlined in the Tenant Handbook above, the rent is due on the first and late on the second. Our notices are generally sent out on the second day of the month. Occasionally a late tenant payment and our late notice will pass each other before your rent is received in the office. Please note that although the rent is late on the 2nd, you have a late fee grace period; you will not incur a late fee as long as the rent is received in our office by the end of business day on the 3rd of every month. Verandah Properties serves notices based on Florida landlord/tenant law requirements and our obligations to the owner of the property.
