Rent in Advance
First month’s rent
If your rent is $350 per week or less, you cannot be asked for more than one month’s rent in advance. If your rent is over $350 per week, there is no rent in advance limit.
If your rent is to be paid weekly, you cannot be asked to pay more than 2 weeks’ rent in advance. If you pay your rent in person, you must be given
a receipt immediately.
If you send the money by mail and request a receipt, you must be given one within 5 days. Even if you don’t request a receipt, you can request one within 12 months from the date of payment. Keep all your rent receipts in a safe place.
