I can live here(in this apartment) until April, that's as far as my rent goes.

Hello, everyone. I paid rent for 3 months, from first day of January to the end of March. Does the second part of the sentence make sense ? Thank you.

    Sort of. The meaning can be deduced, although it’s not entirely clear that you’ve already paid the rent up to April.

    It’s common to talk of how “far [your] money goes”, but it would not have occurred to me to use it in relation to rent. If I did, I probably would have phrased it differently: … that’s as far as the rent I’ve paid takes me.
