   Hardship Letter to Landlord

Dear {Name},

I am writing this letter to request a {reduction/extension/forgiveness} of my rent. I am currently paying {amount} per month. Due to financial hardship, I am no longer able to meet this amount in a timely fashion.

As of {date} I have had {my income reduced/an unexpected necessary expense/fees or debt} in the amount of {amount}. {Description of financial problem in greater detail}.

This problem has saddled me with an undue financial burden that will very soon cause me to become late or delinquent in my rent. I would like to avoid that and hope that you can help me remain a good tenant by {reducing the amount to $XXX per month/allowing me to pay in # installments/forgiving the late fees}.

I am taking steps to solve this financial crisis by {seeking out a new job, etc.} but it will take a little time to get back on my feet. I am trying my best to be proactive in finding a solution and I would appreciate any assistance you can offer.

Thank you for your consideration.
