Were You Charged an Excessive Late Fee for Apartment Rent?

If you were charged and paid a rent late fee in the last two years, the late fee might have been excessive and unreasonable under Texas law. You may be entitled to compensation of up to three times the amount charged, plus a civil penalty and your attorney fees.
