My impression is that she agreed to hold the apartment for you and not entertain other possible tenants.  It wasn’t discussed whether rent would be due for July or not.  If another tenant had accepted the place and moved in end of June, she would have received rent for the month of July, which she wouldn’t have if she just held the apt for you.

@MichiganGirl24:  As a landlord myself, I would have clarified, but it makes sense that she would charge you. A security deposit is given back (unless there are problems with the home), so she would have lost out on a whole month a rent by holding the house for you.

Someone can correct me if I’m wrong….

The first month’s rent ($720) is for August ($600) plus the “prorated” amount ($120) for the 6 days in July you will be living there. At least, that is how it worked for us when we moved in a couple days early.

This stinks, but I agree with others. I have paid for apartments that I wasn’t yet moving into before – having to pay security, 1st month, and last month rent all at once.
