FINES AND PENALTIES AGAINST TENANTS

Our attorney advises against imposes fines when tenants violate the rental agreement (eg causing trash) .The cost of any damages caused to the owner however
can still be charged to the tenant

"fines would very likely be declared a penalty and be legally unenforceable, and could also lead to a class action law suit for unfair and/or unlawful business practices which would be expensive to defend. It is a high-risk venture."
