Get a receipt

Always make sure the landlord gives you a receipt, no matter how you pay your rent.

Make sure the receipt shows

  • the date
  • the amount you paid
  • what the payment was for
  • your name
  • your address including your unit number
  • the name of the landlord or landlord's employee who received the payment
  • the signature of that person
