    I'm just curious if anyone has a different policy on payment for renters vs homeowners? I only have one rented property right now where the renter pays for the service, but I was wondering if perhaps I should adopt some type of policy, such as payment at the time of service.

    I generally am pretty trusting, and have only gotten burned once so far (by a homeowner), but it seems that there is more inherent risk involved extending credit to a renter, simply because they could pack up and leave at any time. Thanks.

    definitely prepay. They won't tell you if they are moving & definitely won't if they get evicted.
