I want to make sure that I understand you correctly.
I'm going on the assumption that you want to know how to get the people paying you to deduct money from the payment to you and send it to the landlord instead.
For example, if you want to pay the landlord $50 a month, and the buyers currently pay you $200 a month, you want them to start paying you $150 per month and send the other $50 to the landlord.
Why? Can you not be trusted to send the landlord a $50 a month payment. You're probably picturing that your method is easier for you, but it's not a good idea. You lose control that. What if the Buyers tell you they're making the payments for you, but they really don't. Then you still owe the landlord the money AND you're out $50 a month.
Well, instead, retain control but make it easy like this:
Deposit all the checks you get from the buyer into your bank account. Ask your bank to electronically pay the landlord each month. If you do this, you will need to find a way to remember to write it out of your checkbook each month.
Or, run 12 envelopes addressed to the Landlord through your printer. Stick stamps on them. Put dates on each one, on the edge: 6/1; 7/1; etc. Each month, write a check, stick it into the envelope, and mail it. Keep an accounting of how much you've paid the landlord each month.
Well, I got a little carried away there. LOL.
Anyway, there's no "perfect legal document" and even if there were, I'd recommend you don't do this.
If you need financial help, you get hire a represenative payee to collect money for you and pay all your bills - it's about $50/mo or less for this service.
Best of luck to you.
