A Tenant's Maintenance Request Letter is a document sent by a tenant asking the landlord to carry out repairs on the rental property.

According to the Tenancy Law of Lagos State, the landlord is only liable for structural or exterior repairs such as, repairing drainage systems, leaking roof, gutters and external pipes, etc. while the tenant is responsible for minor and internal repairs such as, painting the interior parts of the property, replacing and fixing electric bulbs, etc. However, the tenant should check the lease agreement to ascertain who is responsible for the repairs and the procedure for getting repairs. Some landlords may have a specific form which the tenant would fill, while some may require a formal letter of request.

In this document, the form filler will provide the information of the tenant (such as the name, address, phone and email address), the information about the landlord or the landlord's agent, a clear description of the repairs to be done, etc.
