Taking advance rent before renting out an apartment

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: I am going to rent my apartment. Someone handling the property told me that the tenant will give 2 months advance rent and security deposit.

1. Is it permissible to take the rent of one or two months in advance?

2. Is it permissible to take a security deposit?

3. Is it permissible to rent my apartment through this man or I should do the deal myself?

4. I have never seen the apartment, possession is not yet given to me, but I have paid the full amount during construction. Is all this fine?

Bismillaah

A:

1. Yes.

2. Yes.

3. Both ways are right.

4. Yes.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
