Question: I missed a rent payment, and my community supervisor served me with a three-day notice to pay rent or quit. The notice included the rent due and an additional $ 250.

As a result, he realized I had failed to pay the full amount of rent due in the first month after my rent was raised two years ago. Can the property management coerce me into paying this extra $ 250, after so much time?
