Interest charged on rent owing


My landlord is Jewish as am I. My rent is unfortunately in arrears. I am being charged interest on the amount owing. The statement clearly states “ArrInt ” (Arrears interest) and the percentage of interest being charged.
Please comment.
Thank you very much.




without knowing what the landlord has to say, from hat you are writing it seems that such a clause is ribbis, and cannot be paid. if the landlord is religious, this can be explained to him. You can also make a heter iska if he will agree to it. This will not help for the interest charges of the past, but it will help for the future.

Best wishes
