Apartment Landlord Utility Charges and Rent Late Fees

The Monts Firm and two other law firms have successfully sued two of the largest apartment management companies in Texas (Lincoln Property and AMLI) over excessive late fees and other prohibited surcharges on past due utility bills. Both class action lawsuits have been settled. Other similar cases remain pending.
