If your apartment is rent controlled, and not rent stabilized, neither you nor the landlord probably has a copy of a lease. Therefore, the landlord can't prove that there is a provision for late fees.

If there is a lease, does it have a provision for late fees? If so, what is it? The courts generally will not allow a late fee of more than 4% or 5%.

: I am a rent controlled tenant living in a building built in 1904 in Manhattan.
: My LL imposes a $50 fee for rent payments given after the 7th of the month. Is this amount legal?
