Renting costs (first months rent)

Hello, I am looking to rent a place but I have a question first, as a deposit you normally pay the first months rent, does this mean that the next payable date for the rent is one month after this date?

  • Hi Zesink, Usually you’ll pay the deposit AND one month rent so, for example if you have a rent of say £500 per month and the agreement starts Oct 2nd you’ll pay £500 rent and £500 deposit on or before 2nd Oct then another £500 rent on the 2nd November. Remember if all is well, you’ll get your deposit back at the end of the tenancy. Good luck! Jonathan :-)
