RE: Reference Letter for [Name of Tenant]

Dear [Name of Requesting Person]:

I, [Your Name], recommend [Name of Tenant] as a tenant in the apartment for which she is applying. Despite being a single mother of two children, [Name of Tenant] was never late with her rent payments.

Between [Year] and [Year], she rented from me for a total of five years (on two distinct times, in two different apartments). Those two properties had rents of $1,100 and $1,350, respectively.

[Name of Tenant] kept the apartment in immaculate condition and made sure that her children did as well. All of the [Name of Tenant]’s neighbors seemed to get along with them, and no one had ever complained about them in the years they had rented from them.

If you require any additional information regarding her suitability as a tenant in one of your units, please contact me at my phone number or email address.

Sincerely,
