Signing online

  1. You can select to sign online using Rocket Lawyer.

Signing in print

  1. Print a copy of the rent receipt.

  2. Sign and date the document.

Send the rent receipt to the tenant(s). If you have multiple tenants in the same property, they should:

  • receive one receipt if they are joint tenants (ie where all tenants have an equal obligation to pay the rent) and pay the rent together

  • receive one receipt per tenant if they are not joint tenants and each pays rent separately

Keep a copy of the rent receipt for your records. If the rent receipt was sent via email (eg attached to an email), also save any ‘read receipts’.

A copy of the document will also be stored under ‘My Documents’ in your Rocket Lawyer account.

Your tenant(s) should keep their copy of the rent receipt for their records.
