What steps should I take if I'm unable to pay rent on time?

If you find yourself unable to pay rent on time, it is essential to communicate with your landlord promptly and arrange necessary accommodations. As a tenant, it is your responsibility to proactively address any financial difficulties that may impact your ability to meet rental obligations.

It's important to note that landlords are unable to initiate legal action for overdue rent until it is 30 days past the due date. However, if utility bills remain unpaid by the tenant, landlords retain the right to pursue legal recourse for outstanding amounts.
