If you’re a landlord, you might be wondering about the best way to accept or block partial rent payments, especially if a tenant is late paying rent or hasn’t paid at all and you need to evict them.
Each situation will be unique to the landlord-tenant relationship, but there may be times when you do want to accept partial rent payments for rent collection:
- Split rent payments between roommate tenants
- Trustworthy tenant needs a little extra time but typically pays rent in full each month
However, if you’re still getting to know your renters, or need to block rent payments in the event of an eviction, you’ll be needing options that can accommodate both scenarios, such as:
- Not accept partial payments from tenants
- Not accept any rent payments from tenants
How to Not Accept Rent Payments from Tenants
During certain instances (such as an eviction process where you’ve served a notice to vacate as a result of delinquent rent payments), you may need to block partial payments or block all payments from tenants.
