Further things to consider when writing follow-up letters to landlords
Follow-up letters are letters you write after business contracts, job interviews or business meetings to show that you are still interested in the recipients and that you are willing to build a relationship. Follow-up letters provide a platform for continued communication and are an effective way of consolidating a real relationship between you and the recipients. A follow-up letter is important in the early stages of a business relationship as it gives you an opportunity to reintroduce yourself and reconnect with the recipient. It also gives you a chance to address a concern that was raised at the previous meeting or give additional information to the recipient.
Well written follow-up letters can make a great difference in your success. These are letters sent during the early stage of the relationship, and therefore the writing style should be fairly formal. Make sure to write the letter as soon as possible after the meeting to keep things fresh. Explain your point clearly and avoid making unnecessary assumptions. Try as much as possible not to convey any negative sentiments. Where necessary, remind the recipient of any deadlines as well as date and time for the next meeting. Close the letter positively.
Letters to Landlords
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.
