Warning Letter to Tenant for Property Damage
During my last visit to your apartment, I noticed that you were causing serious damage to my property. I noticed several damages in washrooms, kitchen, dining room and carpets. According to the landlord and tenant act, 1985, it is the responsibility of the tenant to take good care of the rented property. Also, any damage caused by him to the landlord’s property will be recovered by the tenant only.
Owning a rented property is a risky thing and that’s why I was reluctant in accepting you as my tenant. However, it was your responsibility to take care of my property belongings but unfortunately, you were failed to do so. I observed scratches on my new wooden furniture, broken handles of windows and doors, and broken curtain poles. Moreover, wooden sheets of many cupboards were shattered and carpets were ruined by a number of stains. Marks of cigarette burns were obvious at various places.
Now, it is clear that you have violated clause 11 of our rental agreement. Consequently, you must compensate for the damage you did to my property. A list of damages is attached with this letter and you are directed to pay [US dollars] as compensation. Moreover, I reserve the right to issue you an eviction notice if you will fail to comply with my directions. Honestly, I do not want this thing to happen. I hope you will not worsen the situation anymore and take some necessary steps to resolve the matter. Waiting for your cooperation in this regard.
