Do you ask for a receipt when paying House rent?
Closed

"Always ask for receipt" for you'll never know when it will come in handy!

From six years of renting my apartment, I never fail to ask for a monthly written rent receipt from the start-up to now.
It’s always a good idea to ask for a receipt. It will serve as proof that you paid rent during a specified period. It also protects you from wrongful accusations of late or unpaid rent.

Asking receipt might be not useful for now but believe me, this could be your saving grace in a rough situation. I had a friend who paid rent in cash every month and didn’t get receipts until one day her landlord claimed that she has unpaid rent for one month. Unfortunately, she had no proof of making timely payments. So she has left no choice but to pay it.

There are a lot of trustworthy landlords but you'll never know if your landlord is one of them. So, It's better to take action like asking receipt to avoid possible unpleasant consequences later. If your landlord says that they will just give to you later, insist that you need it now. A receipt is easy to create, so there's no reason your landlord can't give you a receipt right when you give them your cash. Make sure the date, period it covers, and amount due are legible on the receipt, as well as the name and signature of the person who received the payment furthermore make sure to keep all your rent receipts organized in a safe, sensible place such as in a file folder or envelop.

Let me know your thoughts
Do you usually ask for a receipt?

Yes, we should ask for a receipt. Unless the landlord is your close friend whom you trusted.
