Dear Mr. Bill,
I am writing this letter to request you to kindly giving me some extra time to pay the rent to you.
As you know from the last ten years, I am your tenant and I have successfully paid the rent on time always. I have never created any nuisance for you or the neighbors around. Owing to the warmth of our bond, I am expecting you to kindly cooperate with me in this situation.
Due to some uncertain medical issues, my wife had to deliver a premature baby last month for which we had to pay a hefty amount for the surgery. Moreover, I have to stay at home to take care of my wife and child. In addition to this, my grocery store is closed for more than a month now which has additionally added more debts to us. These two mishappenings have made our lives way wire.
Next month, I promise to pay the complete pending dues with the rent for the new month. Your cooperation during our tough times will be highly appreciated.
I am looking forward to hearing a positive response at your earliest convenience.
