Re: Apology for late rent payment

Dear [Landlord’s Name],

We want to sincerely apologize for being late on our rent. Recently, my wife [Wife’s Name] and I had to put a new fuel pump in our van. The fuel pump was quite expensive, over [Amount].

We normally would have waited to do such an expensive repair, but the van broke down on the freeway and we had no choice. 

We are a little short on the rent for the month of [Month] and wanted to know if an extension was possible?

Because of our good rental history with you and that fact that we take such impeccable care of the home, we hope that you will allow this one time extension to us.

We will be able to pay by the [Date] the full amount of [Amount] plus any late fees associated with this payment not being timely. This is for the property located at [Address].

We appreciate your prompt response. We can be reached at 555-870-8756.

Thank You,
