Question regarding rental. I am currently on a Visa which has to be renewed every 29 days. Renting a condo for the past year and I understand the method of payment is post dated cheques. The business I work for has been issuing the cheques on my behalf however that will come to an end in June. If I am not a citizen and do not hold a business visa, am I allowed to open up a bank account which would allow for me to organise post dated cheques? I have been to BDO and staff there don't really seem like they understand what I'm trying to explain. Your help would be appreciated!
