the landlord says all rents paid after the first are late and subject to cost 75.00, is there a set % or is this open to any charge they want to charge?
Late fees are generally illegal in residential tenancies. Orozco v. Casimiro (2004) 121 Cal.App.4th Supp. 7. However, it sometimes makes sense to pay them anyhow, if the landlord would have legal grounds to evict you and/or you want to maintain a good relationship with the landlord.
