Date: ...............

Sub.: Request for reduction of rent amount

Dear ...........,

I hope you are doing well. I am feeling a little embarrassed in writing this letter to you requesting your kind consideration in reduction of the rent amount. I have been going through a very tough time financially for the last few months. I lost my earlier job as the Company was closed down. Thereafter, in search for the new job I lost a major amount of time, wherein a lot of my savings was spent upon. Now I have found a new job but the payment of salary is much less than the earlier one. Hence, the financial burden is much more in meeting the cost of living. I am also keeping an eye on new job opportunities which will pay better, but I am not sure when I will get a satisfactory well paid new job.

Therefore, I am requesting you to reduce my rental amount by 15% for the next 6 months, which will greatly help me in meeting the expenses. I assure you that after the expiry of the said 6 months I will pay an increased rental amount to make good for this reduced amount and further hike thereon as reasonably agreed upon.

I shall highly appreciate your kind cooperation in this financially tough time of mine.

Thanking you,

Yours faithfully,

(Letter to landlord requesting not to increase the proposed hike in rental amount)


Date: ...............

To
(Name of the Landlord)
(Full Address)

Sub.: Request to not to increase the rent value in near future

Dear ...........,

I am in receipt of your letter dated ............. with regard to an increase of rent amount from the month of ............. I appreciate your situation and I agree that it's only fair on your part to increase the amount as the same has not been done since last 12 months. However, I would kindly request you to not to increase the rent amount in the coming 4 months period. My financial condition is not very sound at the moment. The Company, where I am having a job, is facing market slow down and hence the turnover has not been too good in the past few months, which is resulting in delay in payment of salaries plus no raise in salaries are given since last 2 years.

Therefore, I am kindly requesting you to postpone the hike in rent for next four months. After that period, I am committed to pay the agreed increase in the rent. I shall be grateful to you if you would be kind enough to consider my situation and not increase the rent at present.

Thanking you,

Yours faithfully,
