Rent Arrears Letter – Single Tenant
This Rent Arrears Letter – Single Tenant can be used when a tenant has failed to pay their rent. The letter warns the tenant that interest may be charged if payment is not made by a certain date. The letter can be used as a follow-up to the Reminder to Pay Rent on Time Letter or as a first letter depending on how the landlord wishes to manage the landlord / tenant relationship.
The landlord should keep a copy of the letter on the tenant’s file. This will be particularly important if the tenant persistently fails to pay, or is persistently late in paying, the rent as the landlord will need to enter into further correspondence and may need to take legal action against the tenant.
If there is more than one tenant the landlord should use the alternative version of this letter, the Rent Arrears Letter – Joint Tenant.
