The Rent Advance, if any, is not to be construed as a deposit whatsoever and is not held as a performance obligation. Thevalue of the Advance is the amount which the Tenant will not be required to pay for the equivalent period at the beginning of the tenancy.For example, an initial payment of 2 months rent in advance to the Landlord would mean that the Tenant is not required to start making paymentsuntil the beginning of month 3 of the tenancy.The Landlord will refund any payments made by the Tenant which relates to a rental period which starts after the tenancy ends. The Landlord is allowed to take from this refund any rent of other money which is owed.
