If you are a landlord (or agent) there will inevitably be times when you will need to write to your tenant.
Sometimes these letters will need to be quite formal and you will have to word them quite carefully.
I say ‘letters’ although, in fact, you will often be sending an email (‘landlords letters’ sounds snappier!)
However, note that actually it may often be better to send a ‘proper’ letter rather than an email.
For example, for something critical (such as service of a possession notice) you may need to prove service – which is often best done by hand-delivering a letter in an envelope witnessed by an independent witness. And hard copy letters often seem more formal which may (may!) induce your tenants to take more notice of them.
But whether an important notification is sent via email or in an actual letter – you need to be careful how you word it.

In fact, most of the letters in the ‘Landlord’s Letters’ page came from customer feedback.
Although before requesting a letter – it is a good idea to take a look at the relevant FAQ, Articles and other content as these often have draft letters in them. So check these out first.
