Is there a time limit on collecting rent payments?

November 5, 2012 |

A tenant given a three-day notice to pay rent or quit is also told to pay $ 250 owed from two years ago. Is this legal?

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. I asked the supervisor why the additional amount was included. He told me that when I missed the payment, his company accountant reviewed my payment records. 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?
