The English translation should read "Have you paid this month's /house/ rent?"

Yep, that's exactly what I put. We don't usually use these long constructions in the form "the X of the X"

Yes, it's unnatural to specifiy that it's on the house, because what else would rent be on? And it should be on the house or apartment, rather than "of".
