FAQ's on Rent Collection Concerns
Q: How do landlord/s establish a tried and proven rent collection policy and procedure?
A: Before renting out your place, you have to decide as to how, when, where, and in what form you want the rent to be paid for and put it in your contract.

A: Giving time to renters as to when they can pay the rent depends on how muct time you choose to give, as long as it is indicated on the contract that they have signed on.
