It is difficult for a tenant to pay for many months in advance, it is hard enough sometimes to collect the current months rent. I for instance offer my tenants who pay monthly an incentive for paying on or before the first. Say the rent is $1100 month, they only have to pay $1000 if paid by the 1st of the month. On the second the regular rent applies. On the 5th though there is a late fee of 5% or $50. You would have to have a financially secure tenant to get payments in advance and offer a big discount to give them an incentive to part with their money. good Luck
