How to Write a Check For Rent

Published by Scott Hershman

When you move into a new rental property, you will be responsible for paying rent each month. One way to do this is by writing a rent check.

Writing one can be daunting if you’ve never done it before, but don’t worry! We’ll walk you through the process so you can confidently know how to write a check for apartment rent.

How to Write a Personal Check

To start, you’ll need to gather basic information about your rental property and landlord.

You’ll need the full name of your landlord or rental company, the amount of rent that is due, and the date that the rent is due. Once you have this information, you’re ready to write your rent check.

Here are key pieces of information you’ll need to include when writing a rent check:

  • The recipient’s full name or the name of the rental company
  • The date
  • The amount of monthly rent being paid (in numbers and words)
  • A memo, if necessary
  • Your signature

On the memo line, you can simply include a short phrase describing what the rent is for, such as “January 2022 Rent.” Once you’ve completed filling out the check, be sure to sign your name on the line in the bottom right corner of the check. If you do not sign the check, it can not be cashed or deposited.

If you have any questions about how to address your rent check, be sure to ask your landlord or property management company. They will likely have a specific format that they prefer.
