HILTON HEAD, S.C. (AP) - Families evicted from a low-income apartment complex in Hilton Head say they had been allowed to pay their rent late for several years until the landlord abruptly changed the policy this fall.

The Island Packet reported (http://bit.ly/1PIUNIS ) nine families are being evicted from 90 Dillon Apartments.

Property manager Steve Norman said late payment has been allowed previously. But he says the number of tenants who paid late every month increased this year.

He confirmed that residents received no notice about the change.

Resident Claudia Toro says she doesn’t where she and her two children will live as of Monday.

The newspaper reported that the change was handed down by the apartment owner, RLJ Management, based in Columbus, Ohio. RLJ owns 151 properties in the U.S.
