We found an apartment to rent but we are unable to stay on that place until we are legally married. God willing, on the 3rd week of December, we will move there after the wedding. The owner requires 2months advance and 1month deposit. Is it fine if we make our own contract stating that we will pay for the 2months

The owner requires 2months advance and 1month deposit. Is it fine if we make our own contract stating that we will pay for the 2months advance and then pay the remaining on the day we move there? Can you give me an example or a draft? I don t need very intricate details, just a simple one. Just to make my future husband at peace. 🙂 Thank you.
First & Last months rent is Normal, Also the Deposit for possible damage to the property.
You can write your own Rental agreement or Lease. Getting the Landlord to sign would be the problem. You *might* make a painful blunder doing it yourself.
There are sites on-line with Blank forms, and Office Supply Stores have blanks in stock.
An Attorney experienced with Landlord/Tenant Law should be consulted so that you do not paint yourself into a legal corner.
Again, getting a savvy Landlord to sign will be the biggest obstacle.
Yes, anyone can write such a contract, but it's intimately related to the lease, so you'd be much better off framing it as a mutually agreed addendum to the existing lease documents with which the landlord is familiar. In essence, it appears you want to defer payment of 1/3 of the entry cost until the day of entry. That doesn't seem like much of an imposition on the landlord, since you're not moving in until the agreed day anyway, and your "security deposit" would become "theirs" if you default. In other words, they're not risking anything they don't already have.
Of course, this assumes you're paying for the entire month of December, if the landlord ties their rents to the "first of the month", as many do, whether or not you live there. If you want the landlord to FORGIVE those 3 weeks of rent, that's going to be a much harder deal to sell them.
Whatever you come up with, treat it as a proposal for a favor from a landlord who doesn't even know you. Explain what magical things prevent you from paying it all in advance, like normal people. Maybe they understand. Maybe they immediately cancel your lease, subject to full payment by December first.
The landlord is the one who forms/writes the contract, not a tenant, all the tenant can do is ask the landlord if that would be acceptable and if so could the landlord put that in writing and sign it
the landlord has a standard contract they have all their tenants sign, you have no rights to create your own and don't expect the landlord to accept it. if you try , the landlord may tell you to find another place to live. it isn't his fault you can't move in until after the wedding
You can write an agreement if you want, but the landlord is the person who dictates the terms of the lease and/or payment of the move-in monies.
If you don't have all of the money he requires available to pay when you sign the lease, he very well could decide not to approve you for residency.
You can create whatever you want. But the landlord will just say "Here's the contract I use. Take it or leave it".
He will not be the slightest bit interested in anything you prepared for what YOU want.
No landlord is going to rent to you under those circumstances and he would never accept any modification of his lease, which is likely a standard lease. If you haven't got the money to rent the place and pay what is due when it is due, then you cannot afford to live there. The landlord will see it and, if I were the landlord, I would deny your application.
Ask local educated adults for actual info locally as it varies greatly depending on what country u live in.
Tenants DO NOT make contracts here.
Again ask local educated adults for actual info locally
the tenant in no way makes his own lease, it is not his property to have any control over, that would the owner or landlord, not the tenant if you can
't move in until you are married, change the wedding date, or wait until you are to move
You can do whatever you like. But it is not up to you – it is up to the landlord. Most will not accept this arrangement.
