Hello, I have a question, I'm not even sure if this is the right board. I'm late on rent. It was due July 1 and it says in my contract that after 5 buisness days (not counting weekends or holidays), it is considered late. On july 5, they called asking for rent. I was so nervous I forgot it wasn't five buisness days but whatever. It states in my contract that after 5 buisness days late, I am to get charged $35 a week. my problem is my other bills - my utilites are also due and if I'm late with that, I'm looking at a $150 - $200 secuirity deposit, as well as hundreds of dollars in late fees from everyone else. What should i do? I get paid on the 10 and 24 of this month. I can send a check with the $35 a week extra on July 18 (I can take a week advance from pay). Can I get in legal trouble? my landlord doesn't really like my dog but other than that, I'm a great tenant - always pay on time, etc. Should I pay my other bills this pay than my rent on the 18th? Not to sound dumb, but is this stupid thing to do? This would be my first time late, ever - and he has broken promises before. What should I do? I plan on calling him today..

Some creditors and collection agencies refuse to lower the payoff amount, interest rate, and fees owed by the consumer.
Creditors/collection agencies can make collection calls and file lawsuits against the consumers represented by the debt relief companies.
Debt relief services may have a negative impact on the consumer's creditworthiness and his overall debt amount may increase due to the accumulation of extra fees.
The amount which the consumer saves with the use of debt relief services can be regarded as taxable income.
