My question involves landlord-tenant law in the State of: WA
I'm having issues with my Property Owner. She says she will charge $25 for being late then charge $5 a day on top of that plus anything else she feels like adding to it to stack up the charges for paying late.
I have told her I am not some rich person. I cannot afford what she is asking for. Only the Rent + the $25 late at the very most whenever I have to pay late for any reason. I did not sign for anything on my now currently expired contract in the beginning that stated she could charge me anything more then $25 when paying late. So if its not in the contract and I didn't agree to it or knowingly sign for it then can't she get in trouble for that?
Is that legal? or is it that breaking the law?
