Is there a California Law that forbids collecting outstanding charges on a tenant's ledger (i.e. previous late fees, unpaid SCEP fees, etc.) when they pay the current rent due? I would like to apply the rent to outstanding balances first and then 3 day them for the remaining rent due after previous charges have been paid.

Not sure what is legal but I have that clause in my lease. Often even with stuff that is legal you must have is spelled out. So anticipate the worst case scenario and cover it in your lease.
