Calendar Monthly Payments
Should you be requested to pay by calendar month, it is important to understand that the term ‘calendar month’ does not refer to 4 weeks or 28 days. As each month has either 28, 30 or 31 days, then a calendar monthly amount is more than 4 weeks rent.
To calculate this properly and evenly, we use this simple calculation.
a) Weekly Rent divided by 7 days = Daily Rent
b) Daily Rent x 365 days = Yearly Rent
c) Yearly divided by 12 months = Calendar Monthly Rent
This calculates 12 equal calendar monthly payments, which will be due on the same date each month (i.e. the 1st of each month); instead of the same day (i.e. every second Friday) as is the case with fortnightly payments. Please note that a calendar month payment is approximately 4.33 of a week’s rent.
Late Rent Payments
If you believe you may be late with a rent payment, you must notify us at least 3 working days beforehand so we can inform the landlord to prepare and make other arrangements.
