Excuses. Property managers and landlords have heard them all. These are a few of our favourites. 

  • I clipped my bird’s wing too short and cut a vein. Now it needs an operation so I can’t pay my rent
  • My rent money was stolen from my house
  • My girlfriend is pregnant
  • I have a flat tire, so I can’t get into the office to pay my rent
  • My power bill is too high
  • We just bought a new car
  • I mailed it. Haven’t you got it yet?
  • If I pay you, I can’t pay my other bills
  • It’s not even really that late…
  • I didn’t know it was due already
  • It was my sister’s birthday so I spent the money on her party
  • How many more days until it’s really late?
  • I was in a coma
  • We’re going to move. Can I have until next week to pay it?
  • If I pay you now, I won’t have any money until my next pay day
  • My son lost his job so I had to pay his rent
  • I can’t drive in the rain
  • Can I pay two weeks of rent next time?
  • I don’t think I have time to get onto my online bank and submit it today
  • I’m waiting for my tax return
