Protect Yourself from Being Blindsided by Owner's Billing Delays
In addition to rent, tenants are typically responsible for costs or fees. This can include overtime heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC); parking charges; common area maintenance; taxes; or insurance. You might think that if you’ve specified the way they are calculated in the lease, you’re protected. But if you haven’t considered the time frame of when those charges can be billed, you’re open to problems down the line.
