Dear [Name of Potential Tenant]:

In response to our phone conversation on [DATE] about the room I have for rent at [Address of Room], I am sending this letter to give the details of the terms of the lease for your perusal. 

If you agree with the terms, please sign a copy of this letter and send it to me. When I receive your agreement, I will draw a formal lease contract that we both will sign. 

The terms are as follows:

  • The date of the beginning of the lease is [DATE].
  • The lease will be on month-to-month basis.
  • The room has electricity and water but no furniture, and smoking is not allowed inside the room.
  • The rent per month is [AMOUNT]. 
  • A security deposit of [AMOUNT] must be paid before you move in. It will be returned at the end of the lease, minus any costs for damage to the structure. 
  • The room is only for residential purposes and not for commercial purposes.
  • The rent will be paid by the tenant to the landlord on or before the seventh day of each month. There will be a fee of [AMOUNT] if the rent is not paid on time.
  • The tenant may not sublease the room to a third party.
  • No pets are allowed on the property.

If you have any questions, you can reach me at [Phone Number] or at [Email Address]. I would like your response within seven working days, or I will consider that you don’t agree and will find another tenant.
