Late fees are a great way to ensure that your tenants pay on time when collecting rent online. But what if you want to give your tenants a break (especially during the corona virus pandemic)? Here are three ways that you can cancel your tenants’ late fees using the Schedule My Rent software.
- Edit the Lease
On the landlord dashboard, it is simple and easy to edit or add a new lease. If you want to remove late fees for any amount of time, you can click “switch to unit view” on the lease you want to remove late fees from. Then you simply click “edit lease” and adjust or remove late fees from the lease and save the lease. The late fees will be deleted until you edit the lease again.
- Waive Late Fees
It is also very simple to remove late fees for a certain month. On the landlord dashboard simply click “switch to unit view” and check the box that says “waive future late fees” for the month you would like to remove late fees from. This will waive the late fees for that specific rent amount. If you would like to remove late fees for several months, click this box for every future month.
- Delete Already Added Fees
If you would like to remove late fees that have already been added, there is a simple way to do that also. All you need to do is click “switch to unit view” on the unit and then click the trash can next to the late fee that you would like to remove. And just like that, the late fee is removed and you will see a credit for the amount that the fee was for.
