A Rent Receipt is a method of documenting rent payments that a Tenant pays to a Landlord under a tenancy agreement or commercial lease agreement.

A Rent Receipt can be beneficial to both Tenants and Landlords, offering Tenants documented proof of payments, and Landlords a record of rent payments, any late payments and any additional charges. For Tenants who pay their rent in cash, a Rent Receipt may be the only written evidence they have of their payments. It is common for both Landlords and Tenants to save copies of rent receipts for these reasons.


How to use this document

This Rent Receipt includes important information, including the amount of the rent payment, the date the payment was received, the manner in which the payment was made (e.g. cash, cheque, money order, etc.) and whether the payment was a full or partial payment.

If the Tenant made a late or a partial payment, the Landlord can notify the Tenant of any late payment fees chargeable under the tenancy agreement. Please note that any tenancy agreement will differ depending on if the property is located in England and Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland.

Once the Rent Receipt has been filled out, the Landlord can send an original signed copy of the receipt to the Tenant and save a copy of the Rent Receipt for their own records.
