there is a tenant who approched me and is willing to pay 1 year advance rent . he is single and 58 years old Can i accept 1 year advance rent from a tenant . He has a weak credit . Background reference check came out good . he has been with his previous landlord for 4 years.
There does not appear to be an issue with collecting 1 year advance rent, but always best to consult with a landlord / tenant lawyer. I am going to move your question from "credit repair" to landlord/tenant as the practice area. You should receive more responses.
If my answer is "BEST ANSWER" and/or "HELPFUL" please acknowledge and mark it so. I appreciate your comments and feedback. I have more than 25 years of successful legal experience with cases like yours. My response is often general in nature because all facts are unknown to me. Specific answers require knowledge of all the relevant facts of your case. Follow up questions are invited.
