The rent receipt template is a form that allows a tenant to mark their monthly rent as paid. Most commonly for the use of cash payment by the tenant to their landlord. The receipt should only be filled-in after the funds have transferred to the landlord. The form may be issued on-the-spot with the landlord completing the amount and how the payment was made.

How it Works
Step 1 – Collect / Pay the Rent
The tenant pays the rent, in accordance with their rental agreement, to the landlord. If a receipt is needed then the payment is usually done in cash. The landlord will then write the amount paid and for the rental period.
Step 2 – Landlord’s Signature
It is imperative that the landlord sign the receipt as it is the only proof the tenant will have that rent was paid.
Step 3 – Keeping the Receipt
The tenant will be handed the receipt and should be stored safely in the chance the landlord tries to bring a claim for non-payment.
