Need to write check to apartment complex for rent; how to maintain limited liability status and home office tax writeoff

Background: Starting LLC home business out of apartment. "Home office" area of apartment is around 10% of the total square footage. Separate personal and business assets (i.e. separate bank accounts).

Question: We need to write off the home office portion of our apartment and we don't believe the apartment complex cares where their money comes from, as long as we pay at the first of the month. We want to maintain the business' limited liability standing. Any strategies on how to pay around 10% of our rent with the business account in order to write it off without jeopardizing the integrity of the LLC's limited liability? I am currently planning to write one month's rent out of the business account (8.3%) and call that our home office deduction for the year.
