- Reference to the property you are renting
- Expiry date of your current contract
- Current agreed rental amount
- Proposed amount you can afford
- Reason you feel this proposal is necessary
Having rented properties for years myself, I can assure you that there needs to be a pretty darn good reason as to why you feel you should be given a rental discount. Remember, this is your landlord's livelihood we're talking about...
Perhaps if you're struggling financially and can tap into the landlord's sympathy - or if you genuinely feel you've been paying above the odds and the landlord would struggle to match your current rent with new tenants, then you might have a case!
When writing a rental discount request letter, I would always recommend using a formal and official-sounding tone.
Try to make your proposal sound as reasonable as possible, and perhaps find reasons why keeping you on as a tenant, even though you plan to pay less money, is benefical for the landlord.
