Should I Write a Letter to my Potential Landlord?

If you are a prospective tenant with bad credit, a lack of income or other circumstances you feel might be detrimental to renting a home in Wellington Florida I highly recommend writing a letter to your potential landlord explaining your situation.

So what should your letter to a potential landlord include?

  • Wellington Homes for Rent - Writing a LetterIntroduction: Introduce yourself and your family, if you have one.
  • Their Home: Explain why you are interested in renting their home, is it close to schools for your children, your job, family members?
  • Bad Credit: If you have bad credit explain why, did you suffer a job loss, divorce, death, illness, etc?
  • Lack of Income: If you have a lack of income explain how you are going to pay rent on time each month.

By writing a letter to a Wellington landlord you are providing full disclosure about your negatives, which in my experience can go a long way with landlords.

  1. Good advice for prospective tenants who have to overcome some negatives with a landlord. This could sway things in their favor.

  2. Michelle – this is a great approach to handling poor credit when trying to find a place to rent. I think a letter of explanation will assist the Wellington, Florida landlord/owner with making their decision on applicants.

  3. What a great idea! If the landlord is questioning whether they want the tenant or not due to some issues, this could help them understand the situation and lead to a win-win for both the tenant and the landlord.
