How do I sign-up for PayLease (Online Rent Payments)? - Additional Fee's Apply.

In order to sign up, please click on the "Pay Rent Online" icon on the home page. It will ask you to enter the address for the apartment you are making payments for. Once you are logged in, select "Make Payment" to make a one-time payment or "Automatic Payments" to set-up an automatic debit each month.

How does PayLease work? (Important)

Once you are a member of PayLease, you can visit our website and make payments using a variety of options. Standard processing takes a minimum of 3 business banking days for a payment to post to your account so, DON'T WAIT UNTIL YOUR GRACE PERIOD TO MAKE A PAYMENT.  If you select ExpressPay, your payment will be processed for next business day deposit. Business days include Monday-Friday excluding weekends and holidays. It is important to remember these processing times when making a payment ON TIME. Standard processing takes a minimum of 3 business banking days for a payment to post to your account. Late fees can be avoided by submitting your payment online by the payment due date on the 1st of the month.

Grace Period/ Late Fee:

Rent is due on or before the 1st day of the month. There will be a 5 day grace period. Payments received after the close of business on the 5th day of the month will be assessed a 10% late fee.

Statements:

As a courtesy, notices will be sent to the apartment with an unpaid balance on the 6th day of the month, after late fees have been assessed. Any payments received after the 5th will not be shown. If you have any questions concerning the statement, please contact our office. Please pay any outstanding balances plus a late fee by the 9th of the month to avoid a 5 Day Notice to Pay Rent or Quit.

5 Day Notice to Pay Rent or Quit Notices:

Unless prior written arrangements have been made and approved, a 5 day notice will be served for nonpayment of rent on the 10th of the month. If a notice is served, a $30 service fee will be charged. If payment is not made within those 5 days, legal action will be taken.

Returned Checks:

For any check that is returned, there will be a $25 returned check fee. At that point, we will no longer accept checks from that individual without approval from our collections department.
