Whether you are a landlord who rents out a single home, or you work for a property management company with hundreds of rentals, you need receipts to provide to tenants. Using one of these templates enables you to create custom receipts without added expense.
Using These Templates
Following are four rent receipt templates: two for MS Word, and two for Excel. While all of the templates contain most of the same basic information, each has different qualities so that you can choose one that best meets your needs.

Rent Receipts for Word
If you prefer to use Microsoft Word for your property management forms, following are two options. The first is a landscape-orientation page with two identical receipts per page. The receipts were created using Word tables with columns in various widths and alternating rows shaded gray. The first column contains the words "Rent Receipt" with the text aligned vertically facing the receipt. Details on the receipt include Date, Received From, Rental Address, Payment Method and more. Simply type your details into the associated cells or print the receipts as they are and hand-write the details onto the form.
The second Word option offered is a template in Portrait orientation that prints four identical receipts per page. These templates are based on a Word table, as well, and the rows are alternately shaded in two hues of purple. The words, "Rent Receipt" are in large, bolded print across the center of the first row. Details included on the receipt are Date Received, Rental Address, Payment Method and Amount, Memo and more. You can either type your details into the associated cells or print the receipts as they are and write the details onto the form by hand.
Rent Receipts for Excel
Perhaps you prefer the functionality available in Microsoft Excel. If so, you might opt for one of the following rent receipts. The first template features a gradient gray text box on the left end of the receipt with the words "Rent Receipt" in vertical text. The body of the receipt features a Date field that automatically updates to the current date, although you can change it manually if needed. It also features a receipt number field, lines for Received From and Rental Address as well as places to write out the amount paid in text and numerically. In addition, there is an address block area into which you can type your business name and address and check box controls that you can click on to select the payment method used. This template produces two identical receipts per page, although you can fill them out individually.
The second Excel template and final rent receipt offered in this collection also produce two of the same receipts per page with a dotted line between the two to make separating them easier. The body of the receipt is shaded in light gray and the top row of the receipt is dark blue with bold, white letters reading, "Rent Receipt." There is a Received From line into which you can type or write the renter's name, an Amount Received line for the rent amount paid, a For Address line in which you can enter the rental address and a Date field to show the dates this payment covers.
If you are unsure about which receipt is best for you, download two or more and give them a try. Customize them to suit your requirements and print them out whenever you need them.
