There is no reason I would do this unless there is a reason, like your credit is worse than awful or it cuts the rent way down. Let's say there is a fire after month 2 --- you are out 10 months rent. If you do this I would get a lot in writing to protect yourself.

Is there a particular reason why you are considering paying all of your rent in advance?

Shanille,

I would recommend making monthly payments.
