yes there is a late fee on the lease, but they havent been paying any, and my parents let it slide through because they felt bad, but now that im learning more of how this procedure works then I'm going to check the lease ends. Thank you for taking the time to answer my question

Oftimes, as they say, no good deed goes unpunished. It is important to maintain the security deposit properly, because at least they can hope to retain that if your parents have to move towards eviction proceedings for habitual late payments.
