How to Write a Rental Acceptance Letter

A rental acceptance letter is drafted from the landlord or the owner of property to the tenant. In the letter, the owner confirms the amount of rent the tenant will pay for using the property. Although the terms and conditions pertaining to lease are yet to be decided in the agreement between two parties, but this letter is just an acknowledgement from the property owner to the tenant. The owner briefly mentions details of the property to be used along with the rent and security deposit if any. The below given steps will guide you better on writing a rental acceptance letter.
