My legal representative advises me that I must receive first month’s rent and deposit balance before signing the contract. I understand this is not possible unless I proceed with the tenancy off-platform.
I would like to keep the benefits of Rent Now (such as free deposit transfer and free rent collection) but also would like the security of knowing I am paid before signing. Ideally, Open Rent would receive the rent before the signed contract is released to all parties. What is the sequence?
