Letters to landlords are letters written to people who rent lands, buildings, or apartments to tenants. Whether you need repairs, raise a complaint, move out, or add a roommate, it is important to put it in writing. It provides proof that you have requested something or taken some action. Even if you are currently friends with your landlord and resolve your issues informally, you may need evidence of your communication or other requests some day. A letter to your landlord may spur him/her into action and will keep both of you within the law.
Letters to landlords can be formal or informal depending on your relationship with the recipients. Address the recipient by his/her name and use the appropriate salutation. If you are not sure about the name and address of the recipient, confirm with the lease agreement. State the purpose of your letter so that the recipient can have an idea on how to respond, if he/she needs to respond at all. Include important details such as dates, apartment or house number, etc. Finish with a call to action and sign the letter to make it official. Make a copy of the letter for yourself before sending it.
