Usually, when you rent the house, the schedule for money due is as follows:
|Lease Signing||Lease Deposit|
|Lease Signing||Pet Deposit|
|Before Move In||Full Months Rent|
Of course, there is some flexibility with in these guidelines, but generally the full deposit is due before move-in in "guaranteed funds," usually a cashier's check, money order, or wire.
If you need a payment plan that is set up a little bit differently, be up front with your agent about it. The last thing we want is for you to get into a deal you can't afford. The biggest thing is that the landlord needs to know when to expect your payment, and usually are willing to work with you if you are up front about your situation.
