Dear Mr./ Mrs./ Ms. [ Insert the name of whomsoever it is concerned to]

SUB: [ Insert the subject concerned to the letter]

Greetings of the day!

I am writing this letter to you about the payment of rent for our property. My financial circumstances have changed considerably due to COVID-19 because of a reduced salary from my office. Our household income per week was reduced by forty percentages due to the current COVID -19 global pandemic and less business at work.

This is a time of solidarity for the very survival of the human race and a tough time regarding the very existence of everybody in every sense. Around us, people are battling job loss, health issues, and other traumatic life situations. I am happy that I still have a job though my salary is considerably reduced.

In this unavoidable circumstance, I would request you to consider the possibility of reducing rent payments to [Insert the reduced amount] for the next [Insert the period of reduction].

The pandemic will continue for some time and the government has said a recession seems inevitable. I believe that a reasonable reduction in rent is in everyone’s interest.

We hope for your understanding of our financial hardship currently, and look forward to discussing this matter further with you.

Thank you very much!

Hoping for your safety

Kind Regards,

Dear Mr. / Mrs. / Ms. [mention the name of whomsoever it is concerned to]

This letter is written by me regarding the rent for the property in which I am living currently. Our company is facing some unavoidable issues and for that, there has been a decrease in salary of all the employees of the company by [mention the percentage]. It’s a very tough time that we are facing but I cannot do anything other than accept it.

I am at a time of my life where I cannot afford to lose this job and there is only one earning member in my family and that is me, whereas the total number of members is 5. We are really going through a lot at this time and I don’t know what I will be doing, I need some time and I hope that you understand my situation.

I have already been trying hard in my company to do my best to contribute significantly to the unexpected problems that are cropping up and I intend to continue doing it. Everyone else is doing their best too and I hope that together we will be able to come to a solution soon.

I know I shouldn’t be making such a request but if you can please reduce the rent to some extent then I will be really very thankful to you. I have been staying here for [mention the number of years] and we have been in a cordial relationship ever since the beginning. Please consider this request and reduce the rent for the next [mention the time period of reduction].

Till then, I hope that the company I am working for will be stable, or else I will find some other solution. I am sincerely hoping that you will understand my financial condition and I am truly expecting a positive reply from you soon.

If you want then we can discuss it in person as well.

Thank you,

Regards,

Dear Mr. / Mrs. / Ms. [mention the name of whomsoever it is concerned to]

I sincerely hope that you are doing well. I am hesitating while writing this letter, in fact, I am pretty much embarrassed but still, I know that I have to. I request that you please consider reducing the rent amount a bit by [mention the percentage] for a time period of [mention it].

I and my family have been living in your property on rent for the last [mention the number of years] and you know we are not that financially sound. I have been barely managing to pay the rent all these years, doing the job of a [mention the post] at [mention the name of the company or organization], but recently, I have lost that as well and now I am working as a [mention the post] in a start-up company where my salary is even less. 

The financial burden is on me as I am the sole earning member of my family and I have to support my parents who are above [mention the age]. As you know that father has [mention the issue], so I have not revealed this news to him yet that I have lost my previous job. It’s just mother, she knows what I am going through at the current moment. To meet the cost of living I had to make many compromises and considering the relationship we have formed in all these years, I would like to again request you to reduce the amount a bit for some time and I will be grateful to you for all my life.

In the meanwhile, I am searching for better opportunities where I will be able to get a better salary than the current one.

I will really appreciate your cooperation in this tough phase of my life. We can also discuss the matter in detail this coming weekend if you would like to.

I sincerely hope that you would understand.

Thank you,
