Request For Reduction Of Rent

Dear Angie,

I wish to request for a reduction in our rent.

The reason for this request is that we had already spent about USD9000 to repair the building, which was in bad state when we moved in. We had to replace the electrical wiring, the plumbing and the back door. The previous tenant never bothered to maintain the premises. As as result we had to do all these repairs just to get the premises back to reasonable condition.

As you have indicated that you are unable to reimburse us, we respectfully request that you reduce the rent to USD450 per month for a minimum period of 3 years. This will cover whatever we have spent on repairs so far. Thank you.

Sincerely,
