    ...representing the payment of...

    The following is extracted from an example of payment receipt:


    Received from xxx the amount of xxx, representing the payment of:
    Two (2) months deposit and one (1) month advance

    for the lease of condominium unit xxx x, xxx City.

    Is representing a correct word to use?

    Yes, that works.

    I would not capitalize the word "two". Normally, the condominium's address would be included.

    Are there substitutes for "representing"?

    In legalese, you will run across "in consideration of/for" to refer to money paid for something.
