Letter to Tenants Regarding Rent Arrears

A template letter to remind tenants that they are behind on rent and inform them of how long they have to make up the arrears.

If you are a landlord, you probably know that it’s not always easy to ensure that your tenants keep up-to-date on their rent. What’s more, there are a great deal of regulations in place that can make it difficult to know when you are allowed to take action against residents, and exactly what is permissible.

That's why we offer this useful form letter, which can be used to legally remind tenants that they have missed rent payments and are in arrears. It allows you to specify the rent amounts in question, the dates on which payment was missed, and the total figure for arrears. It also serves to warn tenants of the deadline for payment and that further action will be taken if they fail to act.

This letter of arrears has been drafted by legal professionals. Furthermore, it’s easy to download and requires no knowledge of the law to complete. All you have to do is enter the relevant details where indicated and you’ll be ready to send it off to your tenants – it couldn’t be easier.
