I always wonder what other bill the tenant is paying that makes it worth paying close to $100 in late fees to their landlord and more than once. whichever is greater. Per diem late fees would be illegal to charge. Our courts are punitive to landlords when they exceed this. I'm not their mother, and it's not my job to turn them into a responsible, productive member of society. But that's just me. There's nothing wrong with you setting up something for the tenant to encourage timely payment.
Will look at some kind of plan to get her back on track or set up due date around her work paydays.

fees and as long as you're getting the rent and fees in full at least partway through the month, you're better off than trying to remove a tenant and finding another. I had a tenant once who told me her rent would be late because she had to pay her car insurance. I told her that the car insurance company could afford to wait for their payment, and I could not, and a Pay or Quit would be posted. She paid the rent and late fee.

Late Payment Question for Landlords
I'm curious to see how other landlords feel about this. We have a tenant who has paid late the past two months. Between the late fees and penalties, it's been about $200 extra each month (rent is $985)
on time and not get so far behind she can't catch up, you will have a tenant for life. I would much rather have a 10 year tenant than 4 tenants over 10 years that I collect late fees from for a few months and then evict because I let them get too far behind.
She makes good money, so its not a situation where she can't afford the rent. How would you proceed? Thanks. You are very close to that. The question is, would you rather have a few months late fee and an eviction or a broke tenant paying on time.
Your dollar signs from the late fees are clouding your judgment. She obviously can't manage money. You want to always be paid first vs taking a chance of being one of the ones she decides to pay. Look at it this way since she can't manage money, she won't ever save enough for a deposit to move. She'll only move if you evict her. If you can keep her Nike Air Force 1 High Wheat Grade School
As far as "not letting her get 3 weeks late" we file a dispossessory if she goes past the 10th. One benefit for me personally, of setting up a plan and getting her back on track is not having to go to the magistrate court once to file the warrant and a second time to cancel it after she pays.

Get them on a payday payment plan. Get them signed up for an ACH debiting service (ClearNow or erentpayments) that TAKES rent from their account the day they are paid. Biweekly payments or even weekly payments would be good so it matches her pay check.
