Hi all, I know writing a check for first month's rent and security deposit is customary when signing a lease to rent an apartment in NYC. The lease will be signed today, but the lease term doesn't commence until Feb 2010. Is it acceptable for a Tenant to post-date the check for 1st month rent and security deposit to the date on which lease term begins? Or would a Landlord object and request a check for immediate funds to secure the apartment. Tenant obviously wants to hold onto funds as long as possible and Landlord wants secured funds to hold the apartment. Which position is customary or reasonable here?

Thank you,
Matsui
