Late rent deterrent
I was in small claims (eviction) court six or so months ago and heard a case ahead of mine where the apartment manager charged $X per day for late fees. The judge hearing the case asked the manager to clarify/verify the late charge, then asked for a ledger and the lease. She then spent about 3 minutes going over everything.

To make it a deterrent, make the first late fee significant at least $40 or Nike Air Force 1 High 07 Pink so, then $10 each day thereafter rent remains unpaid. You want to make it a deterrent, but not punishment. Some landlord's count on the late fees as extra income but I prefer the tenants pay in full and on time. If you start too low with late fees, they don't care since it's not going to add up to much for a Air Force Shoes For Men
