When your landlord invites you to set up rent payments online, they will set a fixed number of payments in the payment period or choose a month-to-month payment period.
If the payment period is fixed, setting up Autopay will schedule automatic payments for the whole payment period. For example, if the payment period is a fixed 12-month period, setting up Autopay will schedule 12 automatic payments.
If you renew your lease and the landlord extends the payment period, you will need to set up Autopay again for the extended payment period.
If the payment period is month-to-month, setting up Autopay will schedule automatic payments until you or the landlord cancels them.
