What is a Rent Receipt?

A Rent Receipt is a remittance slip the landlord of a rental property provides for a tenant anytime the tenant makes a rent payment.

A Rent Receipt helps the landlord and the tenant keep a record of all the rent payments the tenant has made. A Rent Receipt acts just like a sales receipt you would receive when buying or selling goods and services--it provides proof that the transaction took place.

How should I use a Rent Receipt?

A Rent Receipt should be used by the landlord of a residential property occupied by tenants who make rent payments. A common example would be if you are the landlord of an apartment building where the tenants pay rent on a monthly basis.

A landlord who writes a Rent Receipt for a tenant can either photocopy or scan the receipt for their own records, or enter the receipt details in whatever rent payment tracking system they use.

A Rent Receipt can also be used to document a one-time rental fee, like when someone who is on holiday rents a vacation property owned by a private citizen.

What information should a Rent Receipt include?

A Rent Receipt typically contains the following information:

  • Tenant name and telephone number
  • Landlord or property manager name
  • Rental property address and unit number if applicable
  • Rental period the payment applies to (e.g. April 1 - April 30)
  • Amount of the rent payment and how it was made (personal check, cash, etc.)
  • Remaining balance (and applicable late fees) if a partial rent payment is made

The Rent Receipt should also include the date the payment was made, and the name and signature of the landlord or property manager who received/processed the rent payment.

Why should I use a Rent Receipt?

Issuing a Rent Receipt provides your tenant with a "proof of purchase" they can use to keep accurate records of their rent payments over time. You can also make a copy or digital scan of a tenant's Rent Receipt to keep for your records.

Also, if you own a vacation property, Rent Receipts are an excellent way to keep records of who has rented your property and when each rental took place.
