Summer is full of vacations, weddings, parties and all kinds of fabulous things to do at your Camden community. But life doesn’t stop when the sun comes out! The first of the month comes even in the summertime, and you don’t want to be stuck with late fees and inconvenience when it comes to paying your rent.
Set a Calendar Reminder
Late fees are no one’s friend, but a simple reminder could be your best friend when it comes to paying rent. There are SO MANY apps, tools, calendars, and even post its ready to remind you to pay your rent on time. Set a reminder on your phone, and it will give you a buzz on the first of the month. Do the same with your Google Calendar, Apple Calendar, Outlook Calendar, wall calendar, and planner. Whatever you use to stay organized, don’t forget to note your that rent time is coming. Even a post-it on your fridge, desk, door, or mirror could make the difference between peace of mind and a piece of your wallet going to late fees.
Opt-in for Camden’s Reminders
If you are not the calendar/agenda/post-it type, that’s okay! Let our Camden team do the work for you. In the days leading up to your rent being due, some Camden leasing teams will be sending email reminders both to your email and to your account on MyCamden.com. If your team participates in these reminders, they will continue to do so up until the third of the month, so you know it’s your absolute last chance to pay without an additional late fee. Let your Camden team do the leg work for you! Simply make sure your email and MyCamden.com settings allow you to get these notifications from your community team and confirm with your leasing office if they do or do not send reminders.
Utilize Recurring Payment Options
Another great convenience that Camden has set up for us is the option to use recurring payments. In your MyCamden.com account, you can schedule recurring payments with your credit or debit card or your bank account with an E-Check. You can set your recurring payment to pay whatever the current balance is every month or a certain total or fixed amount. MyCamden.Com even has a helpful how-to video to show you how to utilize this feature. Pro Tip: This is a great option for roommates who are paying from different sources. With recurring payments set up, you are free to jet set around all summer long without worrying about your rent payment being on time.
Lean on the team!
And lastly, if remembering to pay rent on time still seems like a challenge, go see your Camden team in the leasing office at your community. They are so well informed, capable and ready to help make the rent process as easy as possible for you.
We'll see you on the first of the month, everyone!
