계속되는 불경기의 여파로 아파트 공실률이 높아지자, 소유주 입장에서는 렌트를 낮추어서라도 기존의 세입자를 붙들어 두어야 하게 되었다. 그러나, 아무리 그렇다고 해도 목마른 사람이 먼저 우물을 파는 법. 월세를 재조정해달라는 이야기를 서면으로 전달하기 전 까지는 아무 것도 할 수 없는 것 아닌가.

그래서, 구글 검색으로 렌트 재조정 편지 (Rent Reduction Request Letter)를 찾아봤는데.. 그닥 마음에 드는 것을 찾지는 못했다. 결국 그냥 내가 써서 하는 수 밖에. 막상 쓰고나니, 상당히 괜찮게 나온 것 같아서 마음에 들기도 하고.. 해서 여기 올려본다.

Re: Request for lease extension

Dear Management,

Recently, I became aware of that my lease contract for ***** Unit *** expired. Since my experience with this apartment complex has been such a pleasant one, I am willing to commit to live another year in this great neighborhood. It is my joy to state that the apartment complex has improved in terms of organization and day-to-day operation since new manager Ms. *** arrived. I firmly believe that she has been at the center of this positive movement, and that it has been one of the major factors to discontinue our effort to look elsewhere to move. Please accept this letter as my family’s request for extending our lease of unit *** for another 12 months.

However, I also want to make a humble request to reduce rent. Please be reminded that my current rent has been set at $*** per month, which was reflecting the economic and market condition of last year. As this year’s recession has hit hard many people, I am not an exception to that. Even though I have always satisfied my due diligence to submit my monthly rent payment on time for past 12 months, I am afraid to foresee some economic hardships to affect me deeper next year. The prime example will be that my lovely wife will have to be forced out of work for substantial period of year 2010 to deliver a baby in March, 2010. Given these reasons, I would like to make a polite and humble request to lower my monthly least payment to $***. Please be advised that I am flexible to fine-tune detailed terms of contract.

I am so glad to have this opportunity to write this letter to you. Please review my suggestions contained in this letter and feel free to contact me for further discussions. It would be my upmost delight to move forward and continue my delightful experience in ***** Apartment. In case you need to reach me, please call ***) *** **** or ***) *** ****.

Lastly but not the least, I want to present my most sincere wish for happy and prosperous year 2010.

Best regards,                                                     

*******

 

Resident of Unit ***
