According to the apartment complex we've been late once in the past year - but only on the water bill. This is crap. In the last year the only thing that made us late was them changing companies. We didn't get a bill one month (which they told us would happen, and the next month double billed).
Our bill is always around $20 per month, so I always just add that to the rent check because rarely have we even received the bill by the 3rd. This month I did the same thing, and when b/f got home and told me what they'd said I got this months bill out.
I had not previously opened it, and stupidly I teared it apart.
Bill Created: 6/29
Bill Due: 7/1
Postmark on the bill: 7/3
I am almost positive one of the issues listed is the reason for the "late" water bill.
I'm frustrated. This is really the only bill that I actually have my name on, and I have *no* actual credit score.
B/f is going to talk to apartment complex tommorow, and hopefully mortgage guy will be o.k. with it (he's a family friend...but still).
What else can be done?
