If you have an August-to-August lease, your first rent payment will be due on the first day of July and will be applied to the last rent payment for the lease year (July of the following year). Your second payment is due August 1.
Rent payments are due on the 1st of each month. If payments are not received before 10am on the 4th day of the month, late fees are assessed at a rate of $5 per day.
You may bring your rent into the office, or it may be placed into the exterior drop box (adjacent to the soda machines at the office), or you may use the Portal in the menu above.
If you don’t use the portal, currently we accept only cash, check, money order and cashier check.
Another option is to mail your rent to our office at:
248 S Chauncey Ave.
West Lafayette, IN 47906
(Please note: We are not responsible for your rent being late if the Postal Service does not make delivery before the 4th of the month.)
Most banks offer a free bill-pay service online. If you choose to use this service with your bank, please provide the following information at startup.
- The business name and address (Basham Rentals)
- PLEASE add a memo with your full name, apartment address and unit number. (If you are a sub, please add the name of the original tenant from whom you are subleasing.)
- When using this service, to avoid any late fees, we recommend you set up payment 7-10 working days prior to the first day of the month (to allow for bank processing and postal delivery time).
Information about paying rent online is also available at the Portal menu tab.
DO NOT post-date your checks.
We cannot accept split checks–checks that include payment for more than one tenant. There are times when payments may be deposited to different accounts, resulting in loss of credit for one tenant.
Please remember, as part of a joint lease: If any rent payments are unpaid or only partially paid at the end of your lease period, ALL tenants will be held accountable for the unpaid amount, including late fees.
Rent is due on the 1st of each month. Late fees are $5 per day and are assessed beginning at 10am on the 4th of each month.
All payments shall be made without notice or demand from the Lessor. This means no bills or reminders will be sent. We encourage our tenants to set up a reminder on their calendars and/or cell phones.
When a tenant sets up their tenant/unit portal, there is an option to have reminders emailed to them. However, this is the only way to get a reminder. It is the tenants’ responsibility to remember to pay what is due, when it is due. A lot of students simply set up a monthly reminder in the calendar app of their cell phone.
