A Letter Requesting for Extension of Period to Pay or Discount on Residential Rent is a letter that can be used by a lessee to request for more time to pay rent and/or a reduction of the rent.
A lessee may need to request for an extension of the period to pay the rent and/or a discount due to an unforeseen financial hardship. In this letter, the lessee may help the lessor understand their current circumstances by providing the details of the cause of their financial hardship.
This request is only a temporary measure and the letter assumes that the lessee will return to the normal schedule of paying rent and/or paying the rent agreed upon in the rental contract. If the lessee would want to permanently change the lease agreement, a Request to Alter Contract can be used.
Take note that this letter is a request and does not guarantee that the same will be granted.
