Then I explained to her that Im basically giving her free rent of 2weeks in March, and thay payment in April 3rd she will be giving me is to cover the entire month of April. I told her too that rent is paid in advance monthly, anyway is it still okay for her to pay on the 20th? instead of 3rd of April rent, how do I explain it to her?
