When you pay rent....

To an inlaw who does not reside with you, do you think it is ok to pay the rent in the month it is due in, or should you pay it on the 1st of the month?....Just a question to settle an arguement.

  • When was the move-in date? Id say that day, every month. As long as it is a consistent date, I would see no problem in the actual date.

  • Before another month passes, set up a contract. Renting from family with no contract can lead to big problems.

  • You need a rental agreement. Then both parties need to stand by what they've signed. Rent should be due on the day someone moves in. If you move in on the 21st, rent should be considered due every 21st of the month after that unless both parties agree to prorate it.

  • The first, with a late fee after the 5th.

  • So a person own the place you are renting and happens to be related, right?
    Rent is dues according to the contract and most are set at the first of the month.
    If there was no set contract you know what you agreed on and that is when it is due, usually the first of the month.
