The overall Use and benefit of a letter of demand rental:

A letter of demand for rental payment (demand letter for rent payment) is a written document that a landlord sends to a tenant who has not paid rent on time and thus has overdue rent or unpaid rent. It is also known as a demand letter, rent balance letter, or letter for unpaid rent. This demand letter serves as a formal request to the tenant to pay the outstanding rent immediately.

The demand letter (also known as a rent balance letter) should be in writing and should include the tenant’s name, address, and the rental unit’s address (Tenant’s address), along with the total amount of rent owed (money owed) for the period in which the tenant failed in their obligation of paying rent, the due date, and the date the letter is being sent as well as the landlord’s signature. It should also reference the lease agreement and any applicable clauses related to non-payment or overdue rent within the contract.

A sample rent demand letter template should be complete and written in clear language, stating the amounts owed and the deadline for payment of the monies the they owe. The letter should also inform the tenant that failure to pay the outstanding balance will result in further action, which could include, penalties, the landlord approaching the court to initiate legal proceedings against the tenant or eviction from the rental unit thus terminating the lease, as well as any other relief offered by the court.

The demand letter template should be sent via certified mail to provide proof of delivery and the landlord’s attempt to contact the tenant regarding rent. The tenant’s signature or response is not required, but it is helpful if the letter is signed by the landlord to show that it was sent and that they did attempt contact prior to seeking relief such as eviction. The tenant may then choose to respond to the demand letter demanding the overdue rent but is not required to do so.

To assure further proof that the demand letter has been received by the tenant in respects of overdue rent, you may also stick a printed copy of the demand letter to the gate of the property under rent. It is also important to date these letters and keep copies of the letters as well as the date each was sent out.

In case of a dispute, the letter of demand is seen as the first letter, in writing, whereby a landlord formally request of rent to be paid under the lease contract and can serve as evidence that the tenant has been given due notice and was aware of the request for rent to be paid and the penalties for not paying rent for the property. It is important to keep records of all correspondence, including the letter of demand and any responses or payments made. Keeping such records will assist the landlord when seeking eviction of the tenant from the property/ premises via the court system, or any other relief offered by the court to the landlord.

An owner can send multiple demand letters to the individual who is behind on rent, these letters will serve as notice and proof of notice up until the date of the final letter, whereafter relief can be sought and a date of eviction can then be set.

A demand letter can also be sent to a tenant should the tenant have arrears utilities relating to the premises such as electricity or water, the demand letter is thus not just to recover rent arrears from tenants exclusively.

A tenant that is behind on rent and utilities is effectively in breach of the agreement and can thus expect to be subject to any letter setting out demands demands sent out by the landlord to address or discuss the arrears.

Generally, immediate payment of the outstanding rent owed to a landlord is requested by way of demand in a final demand letter for unpaid rent payment and can lead to legal action in accordance with the law being taken should rent not be paid immediately by the tenant.

Overall, a demand letter for rental payment is an important tool for landlords to protect their property and ensure that tenants fulfill their obligations under the lease agreement.
