Lamest Excuses for Late Rent by Tenants



Tenants come with a wide range of excuses for late rent. BiggerPockets contributor Joshua Dorkin turned to their forums for a few of those highlighted excuses for readers.

One individual said that they had the rent on the due date, but since the landlord did not call to specifically request that they pay the tenant went ahead and spent that money. Another said that they mailed it, but they’d didn’t put a stamp on the envelope. Another tenant preferred to buy tires over paying rent and yet another had started a new business so they said they were a bit low on cash. Finally, one tenant made a point to call the landlord to inform them that they were on the way over with the rent – the entire rent, he assured the landlord – only to show up with less than the full amount. They said that they had it when they’d left to pay the rent, but they saw a stereo that they wanted to buy. The landlord provided them with a pay or quit alert.
