If you are moving out from your old apartment into new one you should know that it would be much easier and cheaper for you to start with the rent at the beginning of the month then to do it in the second half of the month or in the middle.
It is not always easy to get new short-term accommodation if your rent begins in the middle of the month, especially if you are moving out the previous apartment and you don’t have any apartment to stay while looking for a new one. Starting rental period at the beginning of the month is better solutions for tenants at least for three reasons.
1. As we usually pay a rent on a monthly basis, it is much easier to manage the rents as we pay a rent for a following month on the first of every month. Even when you decide to move out it is more than clear that you will have paid the rent for a whole month and it means until the last day in following month.
2. The possibility for misunderstanding is a minimum even when it comes to paying bills for electricity, gas, water and other house hold utilities. They are usually calculated on a monthly basis as well, so you won’t have to pay something that you haven’t used, just because this is the last bill while you were in the apartment.
3. In property business exists ‘’prorated rent’’ that refers to a rent proportionally calculated for period that you have spent in some apartment, and that is less than a month. However, this ‘’prorated rent’’ is usually based on internal agreement between tenant and landlord, and basically depends on a will of landlord whether he is ready to let you stay longer than it was arranged. However stay prepared even to pay a rent for whole month in case that you jump in new month for just a few days.
