This is a sample letter from tenant to the landlord about increase of house rent.
Mr. (Landlord name),
In reference to your lettter dated …………………… regarding proportionate increase in the rent of the house occupied by me, I beg to say that your demand is totally unjustified. I have occupied only half the portion of your house, so you can ask for an increase of only half the amount hiked as house tax, Rs. 500/- only and not Rs. 1,000/-.
I am ready to pay Rs 2,050/- p.m. from the next month if you agree. If not, I shall readily vacate your house at the earliest.
I think, you shall consider my point of view in the right spirit.
