Is this unprofessional?

Sorry if you can read it, I don't have the time to write out what it says.

This is the note I found on my door and although it doesn't apply to me because I make sure my rent is paid on time every time I still find the letter highly unprofessional.

I don't find it unprofessional. They are giving people written notice of what will happen if they continue to pay their rent late. It's one way to cover their a$$ so when their tenants get an evicition notice, they can't complain and say they didn't know.

Okay... maybe I'm missing something.... but how is it unprofessional to expect rent to be paid on time and in full?

No it's not. They deserve their rent on time. Exceptions should be made once in a while, we've been late here and there due to some type of emergency, but for the most part, why keep paying late?

Nope, it's professional. It's a legal, revised notice on how late payments are to be handled going forward- in fact, had it not been on your door, or delivered to you someone, THEN it would be unprofessional and illegal.

Doesn't seem unprofessional to expect tenants to pay rent on time. People have obviously been taking advantage of it, this should set them straight.

The underlined and bolded part is what I consider unprofessional. They should've left that put all together.

 No, I don't find it unprofessional. This letter seems like it comes from an apartment manager who is informing tenants what is no longer acceptable as far as payments go. I imagine he was trying to do his best to accomodate residents and that the owners gave him some latitude to do so but it got to the point where the people he helped were taking advantage of the situation. There are some renters who can't understand that their rent is needed on time for owners to pay salaries, taxes, and up-keep on their complex.
