Not really to the point of collecting, but our attitude and announced position to tenants with late payments is that, once we FILE, we pursue. They have ample time before and during a 3 day notice to work something out with us, if there is reason to do so. But once we ante up at the courthouse and start the proceedings, they are told that we WILL NOT stop and that it WILL go on their records. So far, they have left, or made responsible arrangements for payments - present and future. Guess we’re lucky.
