I live in Houston and when I was young renting an apartment rent was due by the 3rd if it wasn't paid on the morning of the 4th you got the pay or move out notice and then if in 72 hours if you had not paid then they make you leave. I am pretty sure it is still this way bc I have friends in apartments and you can walk through their complexes and see the pink letters lol. I am reading in other places you can pay your rent weeks or months late? Someone told me in NY you can not pay for months and the landlord can't do jack. What have your experiences been?

I grew up in So. Cal. and all the apartments I rented wanted rent on the first.  I have no idea what the late notices rules were because I didnt pay my rent late.

Pay your rent or GTFO.

I'm standing landlord for a few local businesses.

They pay on time, always.

The laws vary state to state.

In NY, they have to take you to court. They can't just kick you out.

I'm in Houston too (well, Kemah) but when we rented apartments rent was always due on the 1st. Now we are renting a house from an individual and it's due on the 5th. I guess it just depends on the landlord.

When I lived in Colo, the due date of rent varied, but almost all were due within the first 5 days of the month. What happened after that differed. 

Now I live in Wyoming. I guess there is a law here that prohibits a landlord from evicting someone after a certain day of the year, I think it is in September. Something to do with the bitter cold winter. This time last year, the next door neighbors were evicted for lack of payment. I heard they had not paid their rent in months. The landlord came from California to evict them and to get the place ready to sale. He said he had to kick them out when he did or he'd be up a creek without a paddle come winter. The house eventually sold to a beautiful family.
