Dear Name of Landlord:

Thank you for taking the time to consider my appeal for the rental of the apartment that is located at Address of Apartment. I understand that my application was not approved, but I am humbly requesting reconsideration.

I understand my application was denied because this is my first apartment rental, so I have no track record of being a good tenant.

I am a newly divorced, schoolteacher who has always lived in my own home. My home was sold during the divorce settlement, so I need to rent an apartment.

The apartment in question is within walking distance of the school where I work. I have included two letters of reference that testify that I will be a careful and clean tenant. If you require a larger security deposit, I would be willing to give it.

Please feel free to contact me at Phone Number or Email Address if you require further information. Thank you for reconsidering my application. I look forward to your favorable reply soon.
