Rent is due on the payment due date. Recurring monthly rent charges are added to the account 5 days before the beginning of each month.
For most leases, the due date on the 1st day of the month. Some leases are due on the 15th of the month. Please check your lease and your online lease ledger for your due date.
If you make a payment prior to the rent charge posting to your account you may see a charge on your account called a "prepayment charge". Please read our FAQ Guide to understand more.
We take responding to your inquiries seriously and aim to do so quickly. Similarly, we expect rent to be paid on time.
We offer a 2 day grace period to allow you a few extra days to get your rent payment in. Late fees will be applied after this 2 day grace period. Late fees are due immediately and are considered additional rent under the lease. Partial payment of monthly rent does not stop late fees
If you have a special circumstance and need a few more days to pay your rent, we are definitely willing to work with you! Please reach out to us to let us know what is going on. If we don’t hear from you by the 5th of the month we may begin the eviction process.
If tenants do not pay rent we may begin the eviction process. We take payment of rent on time very seriously and expect tenants to also do so.
Baker Street may also terminate a Lease if tenants are chronically late with rent payments. Chronic late payment is the failure to pay rent by the payment due date on three or more occasions during the lease.
Our preference is that all tenants pay rent online through Baker Street - by Automated Clearing Housing (“ACH”) or credit/debit card.
An ACH Payment is a direct deduction from your bank account with no fee.
A credit card payment charges a 3.00% fee.
Check payments have $10 per instance check processing fee. Checks should be mailed to to the address listed on your online renter dashboard and include the $10 processing fee. Baker Street may pass on any fees incurred by the bank, including insufficient funds charge, bounced check fee, etc., if they occur.
