Letter from Landlord to Remind Tenant to Pay Rent on Time

Not all tenants are good, not all landlords are bad. Between the landlord and tenant relationship, the most important aspect that comes to mind is "the rent". While the tenants must endeavour to make payments of rent within reasonable time as per the agreed periodic schedule, the landlords should also give leeway once in a while if the tenant delays the rent payment due to any genuine reasons.

Sub.: Timely payment of Rent

Dear Mr. ..................,

Hope you are doing well.

I am writing to you to encourage you to make timely payments of rent. As you are aware, in accordance with the terms of the rent agreement dated ............ between us, you are required to pay the rent by day of every month. However, I am disappointed to note that the rent payment for most of the months is quite delayed beyond expectation. I certainly do not appreciate such delays.

You may remember at the time of handing over the house to you, we had specifically discussed the timely payments of rent and how important it is for me as I have some payments to make which depend upon the timely receipt of the rent money.

Therefore, I would like to appeal to your good nature and ask you to make the rent payments on time.

Dear Ms. .................,

Hope you are doing well.

I would like to express my concern and disappointment on the delayed receipt of rent for almost all times. As per our rent agreement, you are required to pay the rent by day of the month. But I have been receiving the rent several days after the due date. It is hurting my planned schedule to make some due payments.

This is to remind you again to honour the terms of the rent agreement on timely payments of rent. Failing which, I have to reconsider your continued stay at my house. Hope it does not come to that.
