Can a landlord charge late fees for late fees?We got ourselves into a real mess. We put $15,000 down on what we thought was a "Land Home Contract", but titled "Rent to Own". We had to break the contract after 2 years as my job situation changed and left us really tight! So the husband told us we could stay for $800 a month until we find a place. We were a week late in January, but paid to date since then. However the wife has sent us a balance each week that keeps going up and she stated that its due to late fees that were never paid. So late fees on late fees?? Is this legal?May 18 2012 - Wadsworth0YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
