But for some clients who are not convenient to pay 12 months up front, we can negotiate with the owner to break the payment into two such as 6 months & another 6 months. (It’s depending on the landlord.)
How should I make a payment? Bank transfer or cash? Myanmar Kyats or Dollar?
Most of the landlord prefers cash dollar or Kyats equivalent. But because of the rental payment system in Myanmar, tenant needs to pay large amount at one time. So we accept easier payment which is bank transfer.
