When making rent payments to your landlord, particularly if you owe back rent or other fines, it is important to tell your landlord specifically what your rent payment is for. Be sure to write on the check or money order what the payment is for (e.g. March 2021 Rent), and use one of the rent designation letters linked here (available in English, Cantonese, Mandarin, Tagalog, and Vietnamese) to make sure you and your landlord are on the same page. Give this letter to your landlord at the same time you give them your rent.

当您向房东支付租金时,尤其是如果您已拖欠租金或其他罚款,一定要明确地告诉房东您的租金是用在何处。请务必在支票或汇票上注明付款用途(例如,2021年3月租金),并使用此处链接的其中一种租金指定信件(英语、繁体、简体、塔加洛语和越南语)确保您和房东达成共识。在支付租金的同时,一并把这封信交给您的房东。
