State Specific Question About: WEST VIRGINIA (WV)

In the state of WV when can a landlord access "late" charges for late rent?? Is it 5 days as they are telling me??

What does it state in your lease?

Follow state and local laws, most places ask the rent paid after the 5th to include a penalty and increasing amounts as the days add up so do the late fees, mine is 50bux after the 4th and 10bux a day after that, when the rent is paid the late fees are taken off the top and I send out a next month rent bill for the tenant to understand the rent was paid short based on the fees.

I have our lease state that the rent is due on the 1st, the 2nd the rent is late and a $25.00

fee for it. If the rent is not paid by the 5th, I start the eviction process.

WV does not have a law addressing this. If your rent is due on the 1st you can charge a late charge on the 2nd. --69.88.xx.xx

Thanks John!! That's what I needed to know. I have a renter that has never paid on the first of the month. They seem to hold their rent until 10pm the night of the 5th!! thank you so much!!
