Letter From Landlord to Tenant Regarding the Payment of Outstanding Rent
It has come to my notice that the rent for the last two months has not been paid by you, even though one formal reminder over telephone was conveyed to you. As you know well, I have never asked you to pay the rent on a fixed date though in the agreement it is clearly mentioned that you will pay the rent on the 1st of every next month. Thus, it will be grateful of you to clear the dues as soon as possible.
In future, I shall expect the rent without failure on the 1st of every next month. Thanking you,
Sample Reply Letter From the Tenant
It is extremely regretful on my part to receive your letter for the outstanding rent. As you know, I have always been timely payer of the rent. But this time, I was out of station for two months. Moreover, I had not left any instructions with my office to pay the rent to you. Please, forgive me for the inconvenience caused to you. I shall be sending the overdue rent at the earlier hour of tomorrow. Kindly, acknowledge it and send the receipt for the same.
I hope, our relationship will not be affected due to this oversight.
